Penryn at night
The small Town that lies just outside Falmouth, the once small settlement has somewhat been taken over by the uni, but nevertheless, it still holds memories from the past.
The first story I heard from this quaint little village came from an old friend of mine.
Like many students, he stayed in Penryn. He lived in one of the older buildings hidden away from the main street. He hated the building. It wasn’t because it was falling apart, damp or in disrepair, but due to it the feeling that he got while he was in there alone. He would break out in a cold sweat and a feeling of uneasiness would come over him. He always felt watched.
The chair was nothing but a wooden frame, placed there just to give the room a “homely feel.” My friend however never got this feeling. The chair had always made him feel off, he didn’t like it being in his room but he didn’t really give much thought to until it started to rock on it own. I had to investigate.

I had to investigate.
The sun had already gone down when I entered the village. From the face of it the buildings look newish, nothing really struck me. The old clock tower stands over the main road, it kind of gives the village a welcoming feel.
I started to explore.
During the day the village emits a welcome feel, the high street even though its narrow is light. There’s alway chatter coming from the local pubs and shops and groups of people waiting for the bus down into Falmouth. At night However is a different story.
In the side streets, the village really starts to show it’s age and the eeriness starts to leak out of the wonky buildings.
Poorly lit, the tight roads are filled with homes like the one above. The streets appear safe but as I started to explore, footsteps start to echo along the pavement, figures crept out of darkened alleyways and faces appear in windows.
Exploring the Village alone in the day should be fine, but take a friend if you plan on going at night.
