Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall

Roseland Peninsula is a picturesque district of west Cornwall in England. It is home to many quintessential cornish villages and towns. The fishing port Mevagissey lies to the North and St Mawes , which claims to have the largest natural harbour in world, is to the south. Spanning upwards of 20km, it was first mentioned by John Norden, an english mapmaker born in 1548 though itís exact borders have long been disputed by locals and geographers alike. John Whitaker a reverend born 1735, furthered the discussion in a written History of Cornwall, defining the borders that most locals now believe to be true.
