I had never been to Cornwall before this trip. It was always too far, too much hassle, too much effort and you lose a large part of the day going backwards and forwards from London Sitting on the top of Cape Cornwall, I could have lost days without any effort and it would not have been any hassle. I spent a few days in St Just, and even after a hard days walking the coast path for 20 miles a time, it was completely effortless to walk down to the cape for the sunset. This place is beautiful, calm descends upon you like the night descends upon the day, and a gentle warm summer breeze blows away any tiredness. I was blessed enough to see the sun set on the horizon , gaze at Lands End, and watch a pod of dolphins swim from the south to north through the golden light of the sun upon the sea (sea ;) the photo. it doesn't do the scene justice!) Whatever weight of backpacks you carried on your shoulders all day, sit here, and watch the sun set , and the weight of the world will fall from you. To write more would be to waste your time. Just go and feel a place that can change how you feel

Take the narrow lane opposite the cricket club, or a short uphill walk from Cape Cornwall will bring you to Carn Gluze. Here there are great views to Land's End and back to the Cape. Limited but free parking. Alongside the lane is the Barrow with an excellent explanation board. Burial chamber it may be, would be a great catle for kids. In the dry, clambering access is very simple fo most ages, although care would need to be taken if wet or windy. Very unusual to have such open access. Heed the warnings about nearby hidden mine workings .

Welcome to the parish church of St Just-in-Penwith, West Cornwall. Our ancient, grade II listed church is a fine mediaeval building located at the very heart of the town of St Just-in-Penwith (Cornish : Eglos Lanust), the most westerly town on the mainland of Britain. The church is ancient in origin and houses the Selus Stone which is thought to date from the late 5th or early 6th centuries. Today's Church is at the heart of the Town's life serving those nearby and the largely rural community around. Our parish forms part of the gloriously wild and ruggedly beautiful area of West Penwith at the most westerly tip of Cornwall.

We were really lucky to have a beautiful day of weather in October to visit this stunning location. Being first time visitors and unsure of which direction to head we went to the cafe/visitor centre where a delightful lady gave us all the information we needed to make the most of our visit. We were blown away with the scenery and all the remains of the mine workings around the area. We spent a good couple of hours looking around and taking photographs and probably could have stayed longer if we had more time. We have to agree with others that it isn't the easiest place to find but once you do it is well worth it. We can't recommend this place highly enough.

Nestled down a side street just off Bank Square, The Jackson Foundation is a new gallery space created by leading British contemporary artist Kurt Jackson and his wife Caroline. The gallery focuses on Kurt's engagement with the natural world and his collaborations with environmental charities and environmental groups.
Have visited this many times mostly with a friend but once with Cornwall Art Fund when we had the privilege of hearing Kurt Jackson talk about his work. Most folk know he is an ardent environmentalist & the one phrase that has stayed with me from his talk is "There is no away" (as in Throw it away). We get the train from Liskeard to Penzance & bus from Penzance to St Just - public transport could do with some joined-up thinking here & ensure the two dovetail particularly as the gallery will be ever more popular & hopefully more folk will embrace public transport. The gallery is a short walk from St Just bus station - a reclaimed industrial building it s airy & light with a side gallery where films can be screened (last year there was a retrospective exhibition of Kurt Jackson's father's work & an interesting film of father & son in conversation). The first floor space usually displays information about local projects connected to the current exhibition & has a small area for film. In addition to the originals, prints, books & stationery are for sale. There is no lift & no loos. If you visit in the summer St Just is en fete living up to its title St Just in Bloom. Good reasonably priced refreshments are available in the Dog & Rabbit & a fascinating bookshop/cafe which has a great selection of secondhand books including first editions & collectables.
