Welcome to Zennor
The B3306 coast road between St Ives and Zennor ventures into a wild corner of Cornwall, a long way from the prettified harbour towns and manicured beaches. This tiny village is set around the medieval Church of St Senara. Its main claim to fame is as the home of the legend of the Mermaid of Zennor, but it has another literary connection, too: the writer DH Lawrence sojourned here between 1915 and 1917, but his liberal habits and metropolitan tastes (not to mention a wild party or two) earned short shrift from the locals, and the writer was drummed out of the village as a suspected communist spy (an episode recounted in his novel Kangaroo).
