Zennor Church


Zennor Church is the home of the Zennor Mermaid, depicted in carvings in Zennor Church. According to legend, Mathew Trewella was a squire's son who was a gifted singer. One day he was singing by the shore so sweetly that a mermaid was compelled out of the water. Mathew succumbed to her otherworldly charms and was lost forever. It is said that his soft singing can still be heard mingling with the waves on the shore.

There is a carving of the mermaid on the 15th century bench ends in Zennor Church.
