NEW WAY MARKER SIGNS IN PLACE TO WELCOME VISITORS TO CORNWALL'S MOST SPECTACULAR LANDSCAPES AND COASTLINES

way markers on the Lizard Peninsula have recently been put in place to mark the boundary of the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). With the school holidays upon us, visitor numbers are expected to increase across the county and many of those are expected to visit the diverse and beautiful landscapes on offer across the AONB.

The way markers are the first of their kind for the AONB and will remind locals and visitors alike that they are entering a section of the Cornwall AONB where they will find a wealth of sights to be seen, places to be explored and cultural heritage to experience just beyond the road verge. Working with the parishes on the Lizard the AONB has positioned three gateway markers to identify where the AONB begins.

Cornwall’s nationally protected AONB comprises of 12 local sections that include some of our finest stretches of coast, moorland, farmland, rivers and estuaries. The designation seeks to protect and enhance the natural landscape whilst recognising the needs of the local community and economy. Almost a third of Cornwall is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with areas such as Kynance Cove, Cape Cornwall, Bodmin Moor, Bedruthan Steps, Boscastle, Rame Head and St-Just-in-Roseland, to name but a few of the most scenic and attractive locations in the Cornwall AONB.

The AONB Partnership plans to expand the number of way marker signs on the various boundaries of the Cornwall AONB and will be working with local parishes to identify suitable sites for the way markers.
