attempted a rescue of the MV Union Star crew.
On 23rd December the villagers celebrate Tom Bawcock's Eve when traditionally
a Starry Gazey Pie is cooked at the Ship Inn and eaten by the regulars at Midnight.
The Starry Gazey Pie has Pilchard heads sticking out.
If you look on the harbour wall you will see a Starry Gazey Pie on the left hand side.
There is a lantern procession on Tom Bawcock's Eve.
Legend tells of a lengthy storm when the villagers of Mousehole could not get out of the harbour to fish.
Close to starvation one of the fishermen, Tom Bawcock, went out to sea during a lull in the storm.
Braving the storm, he caught 7 types of fish and bought them back into the village.
This is now celebrated each year with a lantern parade through the village and the baking of Starry Gazey pie.
