Cornwall is located in the far south west of main land Britain. Cornwall's history dates back thousand of years with the traditional industries of fishing and mining being the main stay of employment. Cornwall is a fantastic place to visit at any time of year offering stunning scenery, quaint fishing villages and fantastic beaches.
Mining for the traditional minerals has now finished following the closure of the last working tin mine in Cornwall South Crofty in 1998. Fishing is also in decline with dwindling fish stocks and constant pressure from government and the EU forcing many fishermen to find alternative employment.
Tourism is now the main employer in the County with people coming from all over the world to see the scenery, visit the towns and villages and to eat Cornish Pasties. Cornwall has one of the best climates of any part of the UK with warm summers and mild winters. Indeed the tourist season is extending each year with more and more people taking advantage of lower prices and less crowding by visiting outside of the peak season.
There are a number of sports which the Cornish participate in all year round. There are the usual football and cricket but also gig rowing which is a traditional activity with lots of seaside towns and villages having their own team. Rugby is the main sport which Cornish people have a passion for. There are lots of teams within the county, many of whom play at national level and then there is the Cornwall team. When Cornwall plays any county at rugby you are guaranteed an electric atmosphere. If they play at Twickenham over 30,000 Cornish people normally attend.
