Did you know Cornwall has the longest coastline of any English county? A quarry at Carclaze was used as the location for filming Dr. Who in the 1970s. D.H. Lawrence and his German wife were forced to leave the county in the First World War under the Defence of the Realm Act. A compendium of fascinating information about Cornwall past and present, this book contains a plethora of entertaining facts about the county's famous and occasionally infamous men and women, its towns and countryside, history, natural history, literary, artistic and sporting achievements, agriculture, transport, industry, and royal visits. A reference book and a quirky guide, this can be dipped into time and time again to reveal something new about the people, the heritage, the secrets and the enduring fascination of the county. A remarkably engaging little book, this is essential reading for visitors and locals alike.
