Townshend (Cornish: Penn an Dre Egloskrowenn) is a small village near Leedstown and Godolphin and the River Hayle. At one time it was a thriving community with a pub, post office, shop, butchers and a chapel, but these have now all closed. It is a quiet and peaceful village, close to the major towns of Penzance, Hayle, Helston and Camborne. The village hall is still functional, with many events held through the year.
