Welcome to Zennor Parish

Zennor is both a village and a Parish, located on the rugged north Cornish coast, 14 miles from Land's End and 4 miles west of St. Ives. The Parish is 4 miles long and 1 mile wide, and consists of small fields strewn with granite boulders, meandering streams, dramatic coastal cliffs, and ancient hamlets. Cornish granite hedges cover the land, and support an abundance of wildlife. These field systems date back to the Bronze Age (4000 years ago) and are the oldest living artefacts in the world.
