Most Southerly Point Of British Mainland Jul 03, 2006
Our main reason for visiting was the geograpical novelty of going to the most southern part of the British mainland. However there there is a lot more to The Lizard peninsula.

Lizard Point is run by the National Trust, and has great rock formations, that make it obvious why so many ships came to grief here.

There is still an operational lifeboat staion here, a cafe and a lighthouse. The lighthouse was built in 1751 and is open as a visitors centre.

The Lizard is unique, in the UK anyway, as it is formed by part of the earths mantle that has been pushed up the 10 miles or so from below the surface, and the rocks here are dated at about 500m years old.

Plenty of interesting wildlife, as with the different environment it is an Site of Special Scientific Interest. Loads of seals in the area, and a programme to protect a bird called a Chough, a kind of crow with a red beak.

Really interesting place to visit.
