Pronunciation of 'Mousehole' in Cornwall

Zipitydooda · 29/09/2012 12:09

Is it 'mouse hole' or 'mauzole'?

Difference of opinion here between me and school.

Thanks!

"[The villagers] say it in the Cornish way, "Mowzel", but you may say it as you choose."

So by that reckoning you are all right. But it's Mowzel Grin
