Lizard Peninsula

LOCATION: south west Cornwall    PARKING: yes     FACILITIES: yes


Cornish: An Lysardh


It is purely coincidental that much of the 'Lizard' peninsula is composed of a rock called serpentinite. The Lizard peninsula's original name may have actually been more to do with the Celtic name Predannack (meaning British one).


Close to Lizard Point, The Lizard village, holds the title of the most southerly village on the British mainland.


The Lizard's coast is particularly hazardous to shipping and the seaways round the peninsula were historically known as the 'Graveyard of Ships'. 


None-the-less, the coastline here is simply stunning!
