Mylor Bridge (Cornish: Ponsnowyth)[1] is a village in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is in Mylor civil parish at the head of Mylor Creek, about five miles north of Falmouth.[2]

Mylor Bridge has a post office, newsagent, grocery store, fishmonger, butcher's shop and a pub called the Lemon Arms. The village also has a primary school.[3] The parish church of Saint Mylor is in the nearby village of Mylor Churchtown.[4]

Mylor Bridge lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Almost a third of Cornwall has AONB designation, with the same status and protection as a National Park.

Governance[edit]

The village is represented as Penryn East and Mylor on Cornwall Council.[5] It was formerly in the Falmouth and Camborne parliamentary electoral constituency; from 2010 it will be in the Falmouth and Truro constituency.[6][7]
