Beautiful Cornwall explores this stunning region, the furthest toe of England’s southwest peninsula, and rightly one of the UK’s most famous counties. What makes Cornwall so well-known is its rugged landscape, in particular its wild, storm-wracked Atlantic cliffs, along with its magnificent beaches and superb surf. On top of this, there is its long history and strong sense of self-identity, a place quite apart from the rest of England.
This book takes in all these facets, its first chapter giving an overview of Cornwall, its coasts, moors, history and culture, and a little of what life is like in this remarkable region. The remaining four chapters provide a photographic tour, showcasing through Nigel’s vibrant photography those wild Atlantic cliffs and fabulous sandy beaches, along with its quiet harbours, verdant river valleys and wide-open moors. All these stretch from the eastern borders with Devon, along the banks of the River Tamar, through the high hills of Bodmin Moor, to the beautiful Isles of Scilly, a tiny achipelago in the far west, surrounded by the vastness of the Atlantic Ocean.
Beautiful Cornwall makes a superb photographic souvenir of this remarkable region, for both visitors and residents alike.

4 reviews for Beautiful Cornwall
This book is full of stunning images from around Cornwall. There’s far more to it than just landscapes images with plenty on the people and traditions. There’s not a huge amount of text, which is good as it’s book of images but just enough to set the scene for each chapter. The captions provide plenty of context to their host images.
It’s well worth the small outlay!
The south west of England has some of the finest landscapes in the country. This book highlights some of the best that Cornwall has to offer. With an Introduction, the county is divided into four areas, each illustrated with images which show just how beautiful it is. The simple captions say all that needs saying as backup to the pictures. Great value!
The perfect book to guide you around Cornwall, the author knows the County well from its history to its fauna and flora, hidden coves, secluded beaches and little fishing ports. Exquisite photography throughout will keep you turning the pages!
