Herodsfoot - Fore Street and War Memorial

Herodsfoot is a small village in South East Cornwall, some 4 miles South West of Liskeard, set at the meeting of four valleys whose streams join the West Looe river. The name comes from the old Cornish "Hir-Garth", " The Long Hill". 

John Betjeman, in his "Shell Guide to Cornwall" described Herodsfoot as "An inland Polperro in a deeply wooded valley. Slate cottages with uneven roofs, the Looe river very small...".


Herodsfoot - Fore Street and War Memorial

Herodsfoot is known as a "Fortunate" village, one of a handful of such villages in the country in which everyone who went to the World Wars came back. The War Memorial in the centre of the village commemorates this by referring to "those who served". Third Light by Simon Parker
