This is one of my favourite inland destinations in Cornwall and was pictured back in the summer of 2020. The tiny village of Lerryn sits astride the Lerryn River which in turn feeds into the River Fowey. Much of the surrounding countryside is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

A silver smelting house operated here between 1556 and 1583 with the ore coming from various mines in Cornwall. In 1573 Queen Elizabeth ordered that a rate be levied for rebuilding the old stone bridge in order to aid production of silver. The bridge can just be seen in the distance.

Lerryn functioned as a port until the early 20th century, by which time the river had silted up. At low tide there is now just a narrow stream surrounded by mud banks.

Before the advent of artificial fertilisers lime was used by farmers to help improve the soil of their fields. As Cornwall has very little limestone of its own it would have been imported and turned into lime in lime kilns. One at Lerryn dates from the early 1800s and is one of many to be found alongside the rivers of south-east Cornwall.

Here's a reminder of sunnier days, when this shot was taken during last year's summer holidays. Among other places we took my little granddaughter to Lerryn in Cornwall. The pretty little village sits astride the River Lerryn which feeds into the River Fowey almost opposite the town of Fowey in the south of Cornwall. The surrounding countryside is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The beautiful tiny riverside village of Lerryn lies between Lostwithiel and Fowey. It sits of either side of the Lerryn River, which feeds into the River Fowey a couple of miles to the west. The surrounding countryside is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
