The name dates from the 12th century and translates as ‘Tail-end of the woodland’.

Here is a vibrant and colourful little town which boasts many old building and structures including the 13th century church, 13th century Duchy Palace and 14th century bridge. In Lostwithiel can also be found narrow streets, interesting architecture and even a record of a property lease recorded in stone.
