Mawnan Smith

Mawnan Smith on the northern banks of the Helford estuary is a great base to explore all of west and central Cornwall.

Mawnan Smith is a small village with a popular 17th Century 'thatched' pub (the Red Lion), restaurant and shops, also to a working forge and craft centre.

Mawnan Smith, developed as a distribution centre for goods and produce for the Lizard Peninsula. With the village acting as a staging post for materials that were to be ferried across the Helford River - to the Lizard Peninsula. Support industries developed around transport of goods, with four blacksmiths becoming established in the village by the 1850s- looking after the needs of the 40 plus local farms and the wagons and horses that carried goods to be delivered across the Helford to the Lizard Peninsula. The village took its name from these smith's shops.

The "Old Smithy" has recently been restored by the Anvil Trust, to recreate a working smithy in the village.

Mawnan Smith is close to Maenporth Beach. The beach is a level beach - that opens out into a large expanse of sand at low tide. Maenporth beach has a shop/cafe, with a toilet block.
