The fifteenth century church, which serves the residents of both Paul and Mousehole, is the centre of social life in the village.
As well as being a place of worship, St Pol de Leon Church is a popular concert venue with a wide-ranging programme throughout the year. It also houses the Memorial to the crew of the ‘Solomon Browne’ Penlee Lifeboat, who were all tragically lost during a call-out in December 1981.
The reportedly last Cornish speaker, Dolly Pentreath of Mousehole, is also remembered here with a Memorial in the church yard.
