Cape Cornwall (TR19 7NN)
Everyone knows of Lands End but just up the coast is somewhere known as the local’s Lands’ End – Cape Cornwall. A beautiful, unspoilt headland topped by a mine chimney that looks like an obelisk – used by shipping as a navigation mark and known locally as the ketchup bottle, not only for it’s shape but also as a nod to the Heinz company that bought the headland and donated it to the National Trust in 1987. Until the first Ordnance Survey around 200 years ago it was thought to be the most Westerly point of mainland England, hence the nickname. Just offshore are two rocky islets called The Brisons. They’re often referred to as “Charles De Gaulle taking a bath” – when you see them you’ll know why!
