Back to Cape Cornwall!


Recommended Posts

Went back to Cape Cornwall last evening to catch the setting sun...unfortunately cloud cover ruined any sunset. 😞  Still a gorgeous spot!

Agree with others, lovely colour in the setting sun. Is that a lighthouse? It doesn’t seem to have a light.

No, there was a tin mine there that closed in the late 1800s.  The mine workings are gone but the chimney was retained as navigation aid.  So it serves the same purpose as a lighthouse but without the light.  There is now a coastguard watchtower behind it, so it's pretty redundant and just serves as monument to a previous time.
