St Just in Penwith
St Just in Penwith The Essential
The buildings lining St Just's triangular square reflect the prosperity enjoyed by this tin-mining town in the 19C. The church has a pinnacled 15C tower, granite-hewn walls, a decorative 16C porch, wall paintings and a 5C tomb. 1.5km to the west (some of which must be walked), there is a fine view to be had from the 70m-high Cape Cornwall, taking in Brisons Rocks, Land's End and Longships Lighthouse.
