This fascinating selection of more than 180 photographs traces some of the many ways in which the Rame Peninsula has changed and developed over the last century. The Rame Peninsula is a beautiful part of Cornwall. Known as The Forgotten Corner it stretches from Torpoint to Cremyll and includes the villages of Kingsand, Cawsand, Millbrook, St John, Sheviock, Antony and Crafthole together with the sandy beaches of Whitsand Bay. Also included is the Mount Edgcumbe Estate with its many follies, wonderful gardens and stunning views.


There have been many changes to the surrounding villages including new buildings, transport and fashions. From the days when people would row over from Stonehouse in Plymouth with picnics, to enjoy in the park or on the beaches of Cawsand and Kingsand, to more recent days of cars, buses and holiday homes.
