The 17th century legend is
that in his lifetime Jan Tregeagle
was an evil man. Some say the
depths of his cruel deeds ranged
from killing his wife to making
a pact with the devil. As
pennance in his afterlife he was
tasked with the futile
responsibility of emptying all
the sand from the beach near
Berepper. One day demons that
seemed to always be watching, tripped Tregeagle tearing his huge bundle of sand thus creating Loe Bar, the damn that now divides the freshwater of Loe Pool from the ocean.
Other legends claimthat Loe Pool is where Sir Bedivere cast King Arthur's sword, Excalibur, after
the deadly battle with Mordred.
The fantastic stories, mysteries,
and legends surrounding the area
of Porthleven are what inspired
me to use the location to create the
fictitious modern day Castle
Clogyn in my Netherwalker Series.
