Availability: In stock

Cornwall is a popular holiday destination best known for its dramatic coastal scenery and wonderful beaches. In this book, John Husband takes the reader on a tour of the places situated off the beaten track to discover the essence and true character of Cornwall. The coastal path takes us to dramatic cliffs, which are ablaze with colour in spring, and the smaller coves and harbours where sustainable fishing still goes on much as it did in the heyday of the local fishing industry. Cornwall's heritage can also be found in the many prehistoric sites dotted across the landscape of the inland moors, surrounded by the remains of the ancient volcanoes that form the tors and crags of Bodmin Moor and West Penwith. More recent remains are found here too, including the romantic outlines of ruined engine houses left behind after the mining boom of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, which now form part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site. This book reveals all this and more, showing why this county remains so special.
