Lostwithiel is located in the Fowey river valley at the head of the estuary of the River Fowey.
The town itself was founded by the Normans as a busy port and was the former capital of Cornwall. The mining caused the river to become silted and this then reduced the ability for the port to function. Today Lostwithiel is within easy reach of both coasts and the moors and is thus well placed for exploring Cornwall.
