Cornwall is the most westerly county of Great Britain and forms part of the south-west peninsula. Cornwall is probably best known for its long history of tin mining, which continued from the Middle Ages until the mid-19th century, when the tin mining industry began to decline. The countryside is dotted with the remains of old tin mines.

The coastline of Cornwall is long and varied, with many rugged areas and the county has a mild climate. The Cornish fishing industry is also in decline, but tourism is thriving.

Monolithic Stone Arch, Falmouth

The monolithic stone arch pictured here, is just one of the many interesting features to be found in the Gyllyngdune Gardens at Falmouth in Cornwall, England. The tall flat-topped arch was erected on the high ground which overlooks Falmouth Bay. Little is known about the arch but it is likely that it was cut from a quarry which is now the lower part of the garden and it may have been erected some time after 1837 when the house was competed and before 1907 when the gardens were opened to the public.

Approaching St Mawes Pier and Harbour

Approaching the stone pier and the harbour at St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula of Cornwall, England. I captured the scene which shows several small boats moored along the quayside, while still aboard a ferry from Falmouth. The stone pier was built in 1536, but it was not until the St Mawes Pier & Harbour Company was formed in 1854 and an act of parliament, which then allowed the development of the pier and deepening of the harbour.

The swirling currents of the Atlantic Ocean on the incoming tide, added the splashes of white to the lovely ocean colours.

>Smeaton's Pier and Lighthouse, St Ives by Rod Johnson


Buy ⁄ View

Smeaton's Pier and Lighthouse, St Ives

An evening view of Smeaton's Pier and the harbour lighthouse at St Ives in Cornwall, England. The pier which was named after its architect John Smeaton, was constructed between 1767 and 1770 by Thomas Richardson.

In 1890, the pier was extended by a further 300 ft. which called for a new lighthouse to be built because the old lighthouse was then no longer at the end of the pier. The newer black and white painted cast iron lighthouse was manufactured by Stother and Pitt Ltd. in Bath, from a prefabricated design. The erection of this 32 ft. high lighthouse was also completed in 1890. Then following the success of this design, an identical lighthouse was built on the south breakwater at Mevagissey six years later.
