A bit more about Zennor

Zennor is tucked away in a small dell off of the main road, just a few ancient buildings with the church tower popping up just above the hillocks and trees. Like ‘hares ears’ as Betjeman once put it.

I pulled on my boots, and dropped into the church. A lovely tough structure, all battered by centuries of merciless storms. Inside is a 15th Century carved bench end which shows a mermaid. She is holding up a mirror and comb. It has the distinct look of Grayson Perry about it.

During the First World War, the writer DH Lawrence and his wife stayed in the pub for a few weeks. He quickly made himself unpopular. He hated the war and was very vocal about it.

They also decided his wife was a spy and was said to be signalling U-Boats from the cliff tops with her washing. Paranoia yes, though his wife was German and the cousin of The Red Baron so you couldn’t totally blame them. Lawrence left and never forgave the Cornish.
