Zennor Wayside Museum, located on the coast road that runs from Lands End to St Ives, was founded in the 1930’s, and has developed into a collection of some thousands of items all illustrating the many aspects of rural life in West Cornwall in years gone by.

The Museum gives the impression of a “time-capsule” with relics of the Cornish mining industry, waterwheels, corn grinding wheels and tools dating from 3,000 B.C. Housed partly in a Mill Building, containing much original machinery and millstones, a collection of early agricultural implements and a Blacksmith’s Forge can be seen. Photographs of residents of the locality in past years are included along with much memorabilia of domestic life in Cornwall of yesterday. Adjacent to the Museum is Zennor Church, where the legend of the “Mermaid of Zennor” continues to fascinate all visitors.
