Invented for miners, allowing them to hold their lunch by the crust and so not risk mercury and arsenic covered fingers, the Cornish pasty might not actually be Cornish (shhhh! Don’t tell them!). The first recorded recipe for the curved pasties actually comes from a Devonshire recipe book in 1746. Something Cornwall’s easterly neighbours are always quick to point out. Cornwall continues to fight back and in August 2010 the Proper Cornish Food Company made the daddy of all pasties which weighed in at 1900 pounds and had a diet-destroying 1,750,000 calories!
Cornwall was once considered to be the ‘mining capital of the world’. The huge demand for tin and copper created a need for new skills and innovations that Cornwall exported. Thousands of workers flocked to the county during the mining boom, at one point half the world’s tin came from the county. But Cornwall’s success became its downfall as other countries replicated their success using Cornwall’s own technology and were soon producing cheaper tine and copper. But the need for skilled miners meant many Cornishmen headed overseas. At one time it was said, “If there is a hole anywhere on earth, you’re sure to find a Cornishman at the bottom of it.”
If you love the idea of a stroll along the beach then Cornwall is ideal. It has more coastland than any other UK county, a whopping 1,086 km (433 miles) to be precise. Not only has the coastland inspired artists, poets and writers, it offers a huge variety of watersports. Surfing, paddleboarding, sea kayaking, coasteering (climbing and throwing yourself off cliffs!) and cliff diving are among the activities available to thrill seekers.
The Cornish language is call Kernewek. While it is now making a comeback and taught in some Cornish schools, the language did become completely extinct for a time and the has mostly been revived through research rather than passed down from generation to generation. “Leun a sylli yw ow skath bargesi” (“My hovercraft is full of eels!”).
Cornwall has a great tradition of brewing. It is home to some of the UK’s most highly rate breweries such as Padstow Brewing Company, St Austell Brewery and Healey’s Cornish Cyder Farm but in total it has over 30 different breweries for purveyors of fine pints to get acquainted with.
Cornish ice cream, fudge, cream teas… Yes, mouth-watering and the perfect answer to any summery afternoon, Cornwall has over 70,000 cows to help keep the tasty treats coming.
When porcelain arrived from the Far East in the 1700s, local man William Cookworthy set about creating English products of equally great quality. He found deposits of Kaolin in the Cornwall and created ‘China clay’, which was thicker and more durable that the thin, often translucent porcelain. China clay remains one of Cornwall’s largest exports (although if we’re honest, we prefer the pasties!).
Cornwall has some fascinating legends, it was allegedly the birthplace of the wizard Merlin, the site of King Arthur’s Camelot and some claim the secret resting place of the Holy Grail. Mix that with the stunning often rugged coast, history of wreckers, robbers, pirates and smugglers, the wonderful food, rich fishing history, beautiful unspoilt villages, its easy to see why Cornwall removals are in high demand for those relocating to the county.

With it’s romantic and rugged coastline, warm climate, golden beaches, Cornwall is one of England’s most picturesque counties. Cornwall is fiercely independent whether that’s arguing (good-naturedly) with its Devon neighbours over who invented the pasty, or reviving the ancient Cornish language, it is proudly defiant and different.
It was once the ‘mining capital of the world’ and traded in copper and tin making it a very wealthy place indeed. It also brought about the ‘Wild West’ and was for a time considered somewhat lawless (even entire constabularies were attacked by locals!). Smugglers, pirates, wreckers, revolutionaries have all lived and carried out their various dubious trades in the county which later became a centre for the production of China clay, a far cry from piracy and barbarism.
Today Cornwall removals offers newcomers to the county stunning views, wonderful pubs and restaurants, incredible seafood and delightful artisan treats from local breads and bakes to the famous cream teas and of course Cornish ice cream. It is widely considered to be one of the most popular locations for people to retire to or start a new life yet retains its Cornish charms and unique character.
