World Heritage Site
In 2006, the St Just region was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, placing it on a par with international treasures like the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China. Once, Cornish mining impacted all aspects of life and many towns and villages were transformed by industrialisation. Today, our history is revealed by rows of distinctive terraced miners’ cottages and chapels. Now, tourism thrives throughout the Land’s End Peninsula. In St Just there is a vibrant community of artists and craftsmen and, at its heart, Warrens Bakery. Nearby Penzance serves both the traditional fishing and local community, and its many visitors within sight of St Michael’s Mount, where Cornish tin was originally traded for saffron and other exotic spices. Simply Cornish is proud to be part of this heritage.
