    How do you pronounce this please? Is it PEN - HALE (as in icy rain) or PEN-HALLY (rhymes with ballet).
    Thank you!
  2. In Doc Martin the policeman was P.C. Penhale as in icy rain.
  3. You're OK, it is not like Fowey or Mousehole. It is said as you'd expect PEN HAIL.
    Or so my sister says and she has been in Helston for about 20 years.

  4. Since moving near Towcester I have given up all hope of ever knowing how to pronounce place names
