abandoned plant nursery and is now a relaxing and beautiful haven to
rest a while. Café and Studios."

Of course, clubs and societies exist in Cornwall to cover each of these topics, but our aim is to relate the special qualities of the Lizard Peninsula to all of them, for the benefit of those whose interest is less than that of the serious student or specialist society member. In this way we hope to give our Members an insight into all of those aspects of heritage and environment that contribute to the exceptional qualities of the Lizard. Whenever possible, we will aim for events to be led by experts in the particular topics, typically representatives of the specialist societies.

From time to time, we will organise competitions for Members and local schools with the twin aims of highlighting what is particularly good or bad in the Lizard's environment, while recognising scope for improvements or enhancement.


Finger Post
Finger Post

We completed a sample survey of the Peninsula's cast iron finger posts. Our illustrated report was submitted to Cornwall County Council, which is responsible for the maintenance of these heritage artifacts.  As a result, we have received assurances that the County Council shares our concern for these historic features and that, within budgets, they will be rescued and not lost.


On joining and from time to time, all Members are invited to complete a questionnaire so that the Executive Committee may become aware of interests and concerns, and to test likely support for leisure and educational activities such as:

Conducted walks, talks and lectures
• Local history, archaeology, historic    buildings
• Historic landscapes and geology
• Flora and fauna
• Painting, sketching and photography
• Other activities requested by members
