Up Close Picture of the Week: Cornwall, England
Cornwall is located in a beautiful part of England, its southwestern tip. Beautiful seaside resorts as well as unspoiled coves and rustic villages abound. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are one of Cornwall’s must-visit sites. Originally owned by the Tremayne family for over 400 years, the gardens fell into a state of severe neglect after the First World War when many of the gardeners sadly lost their lives. It wasn’t until 1990 that the derelict gardens were discovered by Tim Smit (who went on to create Cornwall’s Eden Project ) and John Willis, who was a descendant of the Tremayne family.
