Newlyn East (Newlyn in Pydar)

Named for its patron saint, St Newelina, the parish of St Newlyn East is sometimes known as plain "Newlyn" or "Newlyn East". It was also sometimes referred to as Newlyn in Pydar, to distinguish it from the parish of Newlyn near Penzance. It belongs to the deanery and Hundred of Pydar. Geographically, it is bounded on the north by St Columb Minor and Colan, on the east by St Enoder, on the south by Ladock, St Erme and St Allen, and on the west by Perranzabuloe, Cubert and Crantock.

Thanks to the lead mine, East Wheal Rose, St Newlyn East was a thriving mining community in the nineteenth century. However, disaster struck the mine on 9 July 1846 when an unusually heavy thunderstorm, lasting an hour and a quarter, flooded the mine. Thirty-nine miners - mainly from St Newlyn East and St Allen - were drowned. The mine was eventually closed in 1881.
