About Cape Cornwall Cornwall.
Cape Cornwall is a small headland four miles north of Land's End near St Just. The cape is the point at which Atlantic currents split, either going south up the English Channel, or north into the Bristol Channel and Irish Sea.
The cape was once thought to be the most south-westerly point in mainland England, however following accurate surveying Lands End was found to be the most south-westerly point.
The national trust has resisted pressure to increase the tourist infrastructure at Cape Cornwall which has resulted in it being one of the most unspoilt areas in Cornwall. A good sized car park is open all year round with a food van and toilet.
The cape was once the site of a small undersea (submarine) mine of which little evidence other than the stack on the tops of the cape still exists.
The walks around the Cape and surrounding areas are truly stunning. From the top of the Cape a panoramic view of Kenidjack Valley, Porthledden and the coast toward Sennen can be enjoyed.
