The Zennor Mermaid Legend recounts that a beautiful and ageless woman who was thought to be a mermaid, had come to church every Sunday to hear the choir sing, and her own voice was so sweet that she enticed Mathey Trewella, son of the churchwarden, to come away with her; neither was seen again on dry land.
The "mermaid chair" at St. Senara's Church, Zennor, can be seen to this day.
