Listing Text

SW 83 SW MYLOR TREFUSIS ROAD, (west side),
6/282 Ferry Quay and walling along
waterfront to north and south


Quay and waterfront walling. Circa C17-C18. Probably built for Francis or Samuel
Trefusis. Vertically-set slightly battered dry shale walling with iron stapled
dressed granite copings and dressed granite steps.
Rectangular quay projecting westward into Penryn River and adjoining walling to north
and south. Flights of granite steps within recesses at intervals.
Francis Trefusis died 1680, and his son Samuel, built quays at Flushing, and both
were elected as Members of Parliament for Penryn. It is thought that Dutch engineers
may have been employed for the earlier quays of this type.
