Gweek, Helston, Cornwall, Meneth.
Gweek is a civil parish and village in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is situated approximately 5 km east of Helston. The civil parish was created from part of the parish of Constantine by boundary revision in 1986. The name Gweek is derived either from the postulated Cornish word gwig, meaning "village", or from the Old English wic, meaning "hamlet". Both originate in Latin 'vicus' correctly pronounced with a soft 'u' and essentially meaning 'neighbourhood'.
Gweek village has a pub, the Gweek Inn, a shop, a tea garden and a restaurant. The village is also home to the National Seal Sanctuary, Gweek.
Gweek is at the head of navigation of the Helford River. It has been a port since Roman times and was a thriving port in the Tudor period, with its own Customs House.
