The tiny coastal village of Porthcurno, located in West Cornwall, was once the heart of international telecommunications, boasting the largest telegraph station in the world. As the G7 summit drew to a close last week, it was interesting to reflect that the leaders were meeting in Cornwall – a place that has a long history of global connectivity. The mid-19th century was an age of technological expansion; an incredible revolution that gave the world the telegraph.
As we all know Cornwall is a great place to come for a walking holiday, an activity that costs nothing, and if you stay in the right place, you can just lace up your boots and open the door and off you go for the day! We have loads of blogs about walking in Cornwall, so we will let you discover those elsewhere.
