New publication - The Place Names of the Land's End Peninsula by Cornish author and patriot, Craig Weatherhill

The Land's End Peninsula is as far southwest as one can go on the mainland of Britain, reaching well out into the wild Atlantic. It is a treasure house of the past as well being in tune with the present.  Not surprisingly, it was the last outpost of the Cornish language as a traditional community tongue.  

Craig, installed as a Bard of the Cornish Gorsedh in 1981, is a Cornish archaeologist, historian and toponymist and the author of several books.  

Having made a particular study of the place-names in Cornwall, this new book explores the origins and development of the place-names of the Land's End peninsula in much greater depth than his previous work.

"If you love the far west of Cornwall you will love this book."  Ray Chubb: Bard Map Essa of the Cornish Gorsedh

 210pp, A5 format. £11.50.
