Cape Cornwall (Cornish: “Pen Kernow”) is a small headland four miles north of Land’s End near the town of St Just. Cape Cornwall was once thought to be the most westerly point in mainland England, however following accurate surveying Land’s End was found to be the most westerly point in stead.
Cape Cornwall is the approximate point at which Atlantic currents split, either going south up the English Channel, or north into the Bristol Channel and Irish Sea.
The Brisons, two offshore rocks, are located approximately one mile southwest of Cape Cornwall and mark the start of the annual swim to Priest’s Cove.
Most of the headland is owned by the National Trust. There is also a National Coastwatch look out on the seaward side.
