Welcome to Lowertown History Group
Lowertown is a small hamlet just north of Helston in Cornwall and a number of residents have formed a local history group to research and capture its history.
The hamlet is on the river Cober and research has shown that the original name of this river was the Lo or Lwr which gives its name to Loe/Lwr/Lo Pool three miles downstream and also indicates that the original name of the hamlet may have been Lwrtown or Lo Town.
This is a living site with information being added as it becomes available. Contributions are very welcome.
