"Kernow Istorek (Historic Cornwall)" Cornwall by Ash59

Welcome to my Dutchy of Cornwall travels.

Now how can I describe Cornwall? Cornwall is.........

alternatively sunny, stormy, windy and cloudy with sandy beaches, castles, churches, high cliffs, low heath and moorlands, outstanding sea views, friendly people, excellent food and a lot, lot more.

In my opinion, there is nowhere else quite like Cornwall in Britain. We have other quite wonderful places in the U.K. but none has everything as Cornwall does.

Cornwall is reputed to have been the home of King Arthur and the Round table. You can still visit Tintagel Castle on the north coast and imagine what the world was like back then (see Tintagel info).

Cornwall has two main incomes.

The first is from tourism and is extremely popular with people from all over the country. If you want a quiet holiday away from the crowds, then don't visit during the kids 6 week holiday during summer!!

The second is from the export of China Clay. Indeed, they are the largest exporter of this item outside of China!

    Frankly, I have to say I cannot believe how people can rate some of your tips so lowly. How you get a mere 3 1/2 for your earth station and lighthouse tips I would find frustrating. Take heart, someone out there approves! Back for another visit
