Cornwall - Mevagissey
The rear of Ship Inn, the front of which is in Fore Street. In George III's day there were said to be at least ten inns in the village. Only The Ship and The Fountain remain in their original positions now. The Ship Inn was the largest and is said to have been built during the 17th Century and to have been re-built a century later. The name Mevagissey is derived from two 6th century Irish saints, Meva and Issey. In Cornish this would be rendered as 'Meva hag Issey', hence the 'g' in the name.
