Copyright: 1998

Before the age of rail, Cornwall was basically an island, cut off from the rest of Britain and the world except by sea. Consequently there were many more seaports than we have today. However as ships got too large to enter these small ports and with the coming of rail, these ports and often the towns all but disappeared.
