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.

The Harbour With No Boats, Pentewan

A tranquil harbour scene at Pentewan in Cornwall, England. The scene is very unusual because the harbour now has no boats, it has been cut off from the sea since the 1960s, when the harbour entrance finally silted up.

There has been a harbour at Pentewan since medieval times, when the villagers were mainly involved in pilchard fishing. Following plans to turn Pentewan into a major china clay port and also to improve the existing fishery, much of the harbour was rebuilt between 1818 and 1826, by Sir Christopher Hawkins, a local land and quarry owner. At first the port thrived, exporting up to a third of Cornwall's china clay, but the continual problems with silting and the rise of rival ports at Charlestown and Par, led to the demise of Pentewan as a port, a little over a century later. The last trading ship left Pentewan port in1940. Wikipedia was the main source, for this information.

Lizard Lighthouse, Cornwall

A view of Lizard Lighthouse, keepers' cottages and one of several examples of marine buoys, at Lizard Point in Cornwall, England. Lizard Point is the most southerly part of the British mainland and the waters around the headland are treacherous. Numerous razor-sharp rocks lie just below the surface, which have been the cause of countless maritime disasters.

The current lighthouse, with its octagonal tower, was first lit in 1752. In those days the light was produced by coal fires. A foghorn was added in 1878 and the lighthouse was electrified in 1924. The site, which also has a heritage centre and a bell tower, is the largest lighthouse complex in the world. The first lighthouse on this site was built by a pirate!

At low water, depending on the tides, the Causeway is usually uncovered for a short time, which allows people to walk to and from the island. When the Causeway is covered by the sea, people are ferried to and from the island in small boats.

Little Dennis Blockhouse, Falmouth

The Little Dennis Blockhouse, near Pendennis Point at Falmouth in Cornwall, England. This D-shaped blockhouse, or gun tower, was constructed around 1538-1539 and together with a similar one on the opposite headland at St Mawes, formed the earliest defence of the Fal Estuary.

The sea lanes in the estuary known as the Carrick Roads were of strategic importance and needed to be protected against the threat of invasion from France and Spain. The blockhouses, which had cannons mounted at several gun ports, were an interim defence measure ordered by Henry VIII, while the building of castles at Pendennis and St Mawes was being completed.

The Old Lizard Lifeboat Station

The old Lizard Lifeboat Station at Lizard Point, Cornwall, England. Set among the rocks of Polpeor Cove, this now disused lifeboat station, was in operation from 1914 until 1961.

There have been several lifeboat stations at the Lizard since 1859. This was the third at Polpeor Cove, the previous two were built higher up the cliff. The exposed position and the treacherous rocks, made launching and recovery up the slipway, difficult and often dangerous.

The next station, was built in 1961 at a more sheltered location nearby, at kilcobben Cove. This was in use until 2010, when it was demolished and replaced by the latest state-of-the-art (RNLI) station, which was constructed on the same site.
