Mabe Parish lies on a granite hillside, overlooking Falmouth Bay and the Carrick Roads, in West Cornwall. We are a friendly, welcoming community of just over 2000 residents, most of whom live in the village of Mabe Burnthouse, which has a thriving village primary school, shop, post office, pub and hairdresser’s. The remainder live in farms and outlying hamlets such as Eathorne, Trevone, Halvasso and Trenoweth.
We are proud to be one of the smallest parishes in the UK to boast two universities – the recently developed Combined Universities’ Campus lies to the east, and houses both Falmouth and Exeter universities.
Mabe is also proud of its industrial heritage and once had several working quarries extracting high quality granite, which was transported far and wide for construction projects such as Waterloo Bridge.
