Penwith Landscape Partnership Board

A partnership of community groups and organisations called ‘First and Last – Penwith Landscape Partnership Board has come together and agreed a vision for the Penwith landscape:

The cliffs, fields, downs and moors of the Penwith peninsula combine to create a wild, ancient and mysterious landscape that is valued and celebrated by locals and visitors. The area is renowned for its unique combination of historic, cultural and natural assets with numerous national and international designations reflecting the significance of the landscape and its heritage.

Shaped by humans, with Bronze Age farmed landscapes visible today, farmers continue to play a key role in the stewardship of the Penwith landscape. The ancient field systems, on thin soils and buffeted by Atlantic winds, support viable farming that is sensitive to the valued landscape, heritage and biodiversity.


Their vision is a resilient living, working Penwith landscape where farming prospers while protecting natural resources, restoring habitat connectivity and enhancing the archaeological heritage; a landscape that is loved, enjoyed and supported by local communities and visitors.

Their aim is to work in partnership to support our living, working landscape. To view their promotional video, ‘First and Last’, visit
