Cape Cornwall

Cape Cornwall is a small headland on Penwith in Cornwall, four miles from Land's End near the town of St Just. It is the point at which Atlantic currents split, either going south up the English Channel, or north into the Bristol Channel and Irish Sea. On the top of the headland is a ventilation shaft for an old tin mine. There is also a volunteer coastguard lookout.
