The County of Cornwall occupies the peninsula at the far south-west of England.
Recognised as one of the Celtic nations, the Cornish language was spoken in the community until the late 18th century. Agriculture, fishing and tourism are the main industries.


Historically a major part of the Cornish economy involved the mining of copper and tin. As the industry declined in the later nineteenth century thousands emigrated to the Americas, Australia and South Africa where their expertise in hard-rock mining was much in demand. Their descendants live on, proud of their Cornish ancestry.
