Maps of Ancient West Cornwall

West Penwith, Scilly, Kerrier and the Lizard



These maps are all based on two key maps of West Cornwall as a whole. One is of ancient sites and the other shows alignments between those sites. Other maps show different parts of West Cornwall or highlight specific matters of interest. It's a work in progress, subject to change and improvement.

All maps open in a new window.
A tip: on any map, click the three dots at the top of the left-hand column to collapse the map legend.
