In 1595 the Spanish Armada arrived in Mousehole and 400 Spanish soldiers attacked the tiny village, burning pretty much everything to ground. The one building to survive: a pub. (Most likely the Armada men needed some refueling after all that scorching and when they stumbled out singing Spanish football songs at the end of their revelry they were simply too drunk to toss the last match.)
The former pub was called Keigwin Arms and of course we knew we’d have to find the tiny lane it perches on because this is history. Supposedly Squire Keigwin was killed by a cannon ball defending his house, so there's really no happy ending to this story except for that the building still stands.
