Cornish: Sen Senan


Sennen lies about 8 miles (13 km) west-southwest of Penzance. With its location at the western tip of the Penwith peninsula, it is exposed to prevailing westerly winds from the Atlantic. It has been subject to some amazing scenes, especially when the UK gets the tail-end of any hurricanes coming across the Atlantic ocean. It is the most westerly village in mainland England.


On the old Christmas Day in the 1830s (and before) the farmers of St Sennen assembled for the festivities. One of the dishes was a pie made from 24 blackbirds.


The Longships group of rocky islets situated off Lands End are also within the parish!
