Penwith and Lands End Guide and History
The land beyond St. Ives and Penzance is all that seperates Cornwall from the Atlantic. It is like a country of its own, carved from the granite by milenia of winds and nature. The tin mining heritage of Cornwall is very evident here, with many places of note; museums, mines, and the vivid signs of the industrial age on the rugged landscape.
There are currently no events listed for this area, if you are planning an event, please let us know and we will add it.
