Cape Cornwall (Cornish: “Pen Kernow”) is a small headland in Cornwall, UK. It is four miles north of Land’s End near the town of St Just.
Cape Cornwall is the point at which Atlantic currents split, either going south up the English Channel, or north into the Bristol Channel and Irish Sea

My love of the sea stems from my childhood. I was born in Hartlepool on the North East coast and visited the little fishing village of Staithes often, as I still do today. The fishing cobles to be found on the North East coast serve as my models.
