History of England's Warmest Village
FLUSHING: A PEOPLE’S HISTORY is the story of the beautiful Cornish village where John Marquis lives with his wife, Joan. Focused on the families that fashioned the village’s fascinating past, this book tracks its development from the mid-17th century when Dutch engineers built the stone quays, through the packet ship era (1688-1855), and into modern times as a fishing community with strong agricultural links. Today a village of 700 people, Flushing is a popular tourist resort with a ferry link to the famous port of Falmouth. It is reputed to be the warmest village in England.
