Landewednack Church Cove and Surrounding Coastline

Landewednack Church Cove and Surrounding Coastline

Landewednack, in Cornish, Lanndewynnek, is the most southerly parish of Cornwall and the name of the tiny hamlet around the the church.

The pretty church of St Wynwallow or Wynwalloe, is the most southerly church in mainland Britain. It is believed to date from around 600AD. The feast day of St Wynwallow is 28th April.

Just below the church is a small rocky cove - Church Cove - with a few small boats hauled up on its slipway. The hamlet has several very pretty thatched cottages.

Landewednack is bounded by Ruan Minor and Grade to the north, by Grade and the coast to the east, by the sea to the south, and on the west by the sea and Mullion.

The name Landewednack, previously Landewennac, is likely comprised of the Cornish words, 'lan' meaning 'sacred enclosure' and 'Wennac' meaning of Saint Wennac. This Saint may be be the same as St Wynwalloe.

The parish of Landewednack contains many places of interest, the most famous being Lizard Point, the most southerly point in the UK.

Lizard, the largest settlement within the parish is where most shops and facilities are located.

Kynance Cove, Pentreath Beach, Caerthillian Cove, Housel Bay and Kilcobben Cove are all within the parish.

The new Lizard Lifeboat Station is located at Kilcobben Cove and a little further along the coast path towards Lizard Point is the National Coastwatch Instution station, NCI Bass Point.

There are many lovely walks in the parish, not only along the coast path but also a network of public footpaths. Using these footpaths and the coast path you can enjoy many excellent circular walks.
