Fowey

Fowey  Picture 1

The town of Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall is located on the mouth of the Fowey river about 20 miles west of Plymouth, and 5 miles east of St Austell. Fowey Regatta is held in August and in May the town is the backdrop for the Fowey Festival of Words and Music.

Commercially, Fowey is known as a China Clay port. Fowey is a deep water harbour and in recent years Fowey had been one of the largest exporting ports in the United Kingdom in tonnage terms, with exports of clay in excess of 1.8 million tonnes in 1989. Over 40% of all cargoes handled in the South West passed then through Fowey.

The port hosted its longest ship, the Cruise liner Boudicca at 205 metres length overall in August 2007. The Commissioners are keen to increase cruise liner visits.  Passengers enjoy visiting the many beautiful local attractions including the Eden Project, Heligan Garden & National Trust properties.
