Land’s End, Cornwall
Saturday, 15 August 2020
Land’s End is a headland and holiday complex in western Cornwall, England. It’s situated on the Penwith Peninsula, roughly 8 miles (13 kilometres) west-southwest of Penzance. The English Channel is to the east and the Celtic Sea is to the west. Land’s End is the most westerly point of mainland Cornwall and England. However, it’s not the westernmost point on mainland Britain, as this title narrowly goes to Corrachad Mòr in the Scottish Highlands.
The actual Land’s End, or Peal Point, is a modest headland compared with nearby headlands such as Pedn-men-dhu overlooking Sennen Cove and Pordenack, to the south. Land’s end headland is comprised of granite, an igneous rock that is resistant to weathering. The present hotel and tourist complex is at Carn Kez, 200 metres south of the actual Land’s End.
Land’s End is the start/finishing point of ‘end to end’ journeys with John o’ Groats, the northernmost town in mainland Scotland and Britain. These journeys are usually accomplished on foot or by bicycle. End to end journeys appear to have begun in the late 1860s or early 1870s. There’s a sign at the Land’s End headland where tourist can have their photo taken for a fee. The wooden letters can be rearranged to name the place where the individual lives.
