LUBBLY PIC,AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS WHEN THE SEA IS ROUGH NOT TO BE MISSED.

Carn Gloose is actually south-east of Cape Cornwall. The 70-fathom level of Cape Cornwall Mine extends for 170 fathoms north-west of the Cape. Until about 1905 there were actually two engine houses on the south side of the Cape!

In fact this should not be called Cape Cornwall... A cape is defined as where two major bodies of water meet and it was presumed that this headland was the most westerly in Cornwall and therefore where the Atlantic and (possibly) the Celtic Sea/St George's Channel met. Until the Ordnance Survey in 1801 when it was discovered that Lands End was further west. However the headland was already named, as was Lands End, so the name stuck.

This is Kendijack headland to the north of Cape Cornwall, nr St Just

Great pic. brings back childhood memories.
