In 1893 the Rev. F. J. Horsefield wrote a delightful book about the village of Pendeen, in the far west of Cornwall, UK.
“[This is] one of the wildest, weirdest, quaintest, and most interesting, out-of-the-way spots in this charming county. Pendeen, the village in question, is full of attractions for the botanist and geologist, for the artist and traveller, for the antiquarian and the historian, for the philosopher and the student of human nature.” (page 1)
