Pentewan - The name Pentewan
is from the Cornish language, PEN meaning a
headland and TEWAN or Towan meaning a sand-hill,
hillocks or dunes. The village is built around
a circular hill known as The Round. It is known
that an Iron Age settlement was situated on
this hill as traces of hut circles and an entrenchment
have been discovered. Pentewan is mentioned
in the Doomsday Book of 1086 where it states,
The Manor of Pentewan was held by Osulf.
