‘Salty Cove’ is the title of the third in a trilogy of beautiful books celebrating the Cornish fishing industry. Released on 10th June, ‘Salty Cove’ follows the successful ‘Salt of the Earth’ and ‘Sea, Salt and Solitude.’

This beautiful coffee table book is a collection of stunning black and white portraits of the Mevagissey fishing community and their accompanying life stories. It is a living piece of social history, dedicated to the unique, amazing, and hard-working people from this beautiful part of Cornwall. Sales of ‘Salty Cove’ will raise funds for the Fishermen’s Mission.  Julian Waring, south west Fundraising Manager says:

“This book is three years in the making and reflects the energy of our dedicated volunteers in Mevagissey who kept this project alive through Lockdown restrictions.”



‘Salty Cove’ is coming soon but we need your help. The Fishermen’s Mission has a Crowdfunding Page to make it a reality. For a small donation your name or family name will be printed in ‘Salty Cove.’ If Mevagissey has a special meaning to you and you wish to support this project, please visit our website www.fishermensmission.org.uk and click on Mevagissey or contact Julian Waring at the Fishermen’s Mission julianwaring@fishermensmission.org.uk
