Helston from the ornamental lake
Helston was originally a port town at the head of the estuary of the River Cober. The river started to silt up in the 13th century and with the formation of Loe Bar across the estuary mouth, all port activity ceased. Helston was a "coinage town" where tin ingots were assayed and stamped and a duty paid to the Duke of Cornwall (usually the heir to the throne).
