Volume 2 covering Chair Ladder, the South Coast and the explosion of new routes on The Lizard will follow hot on its heels later this year. The fact that the principle author of the guide Andy March, who did a great job with the West Cornwall Supplement, has climbed the traverse of String of Pearls on Bosigran in both directions, you realise the script is in very good hands.

Two sets of triple ramparts with outer ditches have been built on the north east and south west sides. The West Cornwall Field Club excavated the site in 1939 and again in 1948–9. The northern ramparts are the best preserved and show the remains of stone revetting, with the inner one almost wholly built of stone. The outermost rampart of the southern set has been lost through erosion and landslip. Three hundred pottery sherds, mainly from one habitation site, were dated to between 800 and 400 BC.

At Gurnard's Head and Bosigran there is evidence of Iron Age cliff-castles. Inland the high moor and heathland is dotted with antiquities - quoits, carns and stone circles – for Penwith contains the highest concentration of iron-age archaeological remains in Europe including a well-preserved village at Chysauster. Between the uplands and the coast is a patchwork of small, stone-hedged fields, many pre-historic in origin, and managed from ancient granite farmsteads.

Cornwall is the westernmost part of the South West Peninsula of the island of Great Britain. The southwesternmost point is Land's End and the southernmost Lizard Point
