Grampound is a quiet village on the River Fal which has a history stretching back to Roman times and which became a thriving port in the Norman period with ships being able to moor there. The name Grampound is believed to derive from the Norman French ‘grand pont’ meaning ‘great bridge’. The town which we know today came into existence in the 13th century and was part of the ancient Manor of Tybesta, whose Lord of the Manor was in charge of the Fal’s fisheries and held other rights over the use of the river. Grampound is mentioned in the Domesday Book. It received a number of charters.
As the Fal River silted up the ‘great bridge’ was built and the town slowly lost its importance as shipping could no longer negotiate the river here.
Grampound had two water mills which originally began working in the Norman period. Known from the 1600s onwards as Town Mills, these grist mills would have ground corn for flour.
Today Grampound is a busy village with a number of local businesses including a village store, pine and period furniture shop and the Dolphin Inn public house. Many people commute to Truro and St Austell. There is a local primary school and active village hall.
