Beautiful Cornwall is the third book to be produced by Aquaterra Publishing, and the second in the ‘Portrait of a County’ series (following on from Beautiful Devon, published in 2018).

Exclusively illustrated by Nigel Hicks’s photography, Beautiful Cornwall takes a photographic tour of this stunning region of southwest England, creating a wonderful memento of its coasts, moors, events and people.

An outline of Beautiful Cornwall

Chapter One provides a summary of the lie of the land and coast, Cornwall’s wildlife, and some of the factors that make Cornwall a unique place to live in. There is an overview of Cornwall’s mining history, as well as today’s fishing, farming and tourism business.

Chapter Two is a photo essay presenting east Cornwall, covering the valleys of the Tamar and Lynher Rivers, as well as the beautiful Rame peninsula and the fishing centres of Looe and Polperro.

Chapter Three tours along Cornwall’s rugged north coast, taking in its stunning surfing beaches, some of the rocky headlands, and the beautiful Camel estuary, along with the town of Padstow. The latter’s annual Obby Oss Festival is also covered.

Chapter Four presents Cornwall’s southern side, encompassing  the towns of Fowey, St Austell, Falmouth and Truro, as well as such famous sites as the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Chapter Five showcases Cornwall’s far west, covering the Lizard and Penwith peninsulas, plus the stunning Isles of Scilly. St Ives, Penzance and Newlyn are featured, along with some of Cornwall’s best beaches, namely Sennen and Hayle. Two festivals - Helston’s Flora Day and Penzance’s Golowan - are also included. A section on the Scillies introduces the beauty of these islands, particularly Tresco (including its famous Abbey Garden), and the islands’ marine wildlife.
