Sennen Cove

The local area and what you can do

The infamous surrounding coast encounters the full impact from the consistent Atlantic swells that are responsible for the countless shipwrecks that have accrued off Lands end over the centuries.

Local wreckers would be first on the scene, risking their lives to scavenge anything of value that ships lost due to the wild west storms, before smuggling them to safety through an alleged maze of tunnels that apparently run from the cove, all the way to the top of the hill. The latest wreck of note was the MV RMS Mulheim which ran aground between Sennen and Lands End in March 2003 but unfortunately for the locals, it was carrying 2,200 tonnes of car scrap plastic.
