The act of modern pilgrimage is problematic. Common ground becomes scarce between Individuals grouped together by circumstance. Without common ground there can be no focussed point of pilgrimage. With no agreed point an arbitrary choice becomes equal to all others.

So, do you know where Zennor is? Not a clue. Do you know where Zennor is? Absolutely no idea whatsoever. Do you know where Zennor is? Yes, it’s on the St. Just road. Do you know where Zennor is? No, no idea. Do you know where Zennor is? I do, but I could uh o, only on a map, I have the th vague area it’s in. It’s right near here. Do you know where Zennor is? How do you spell Zennor? Z – E – double N – O – R No I don’t know it. Do you know where Zennor is? Yeees, I’m pretty confident about Zennor. It’s in Cornwall, it’s on the coast. And it’s west of St. Ives, somewhere between St.Ives and Lands End. Fabulous place. Do you know where Zennor is? No. Do you know where Zennor is? Yes. Do you know where Zennor is? I would describe Zennor as quirky. Um, full of history. Lots of memories for you with your father. Yeah. And myths. Hmmm. With the mermaid. Hmmm. Um. And scary memories of the churchyard ‘caus my brother used to lock me in there. Do you know where Zennor is? Describe away. Describe away? Well I don’t live in Zennor, um I’ve worked out this way, actually at Zennor for six years this week I believe. So it’s an anniversary. Um great place to work. Lovely community. Not a place I’d choose to live personally because it’s too small a community for my tastes. Do you think it lacks in necessities then? It, it. It’s got what it needs for its size now, um but it is one of those many communities now where its essential you have access to transport. There are no facilitates here apart from the pub in a sense. Um, but a lot of the people here have lived here for some time. Like all places it suffers from a few holiday homes but nothing too excessive. Does it get very busy in the tourist season? Extremely busy. Its very popular. Um, St Ives to Zennor is one of the, probably most popular walks along the costal path. So they do poor in, in varying states of um, collapse, depending. MP


So what kind of time does, the kinda, the season start picking up? It’s difficult to say because it does vary year to year. It party depends on when Easter falls, it partly depends on the weather. And nothing’s very, what shall we say, average at the moment. No. Because of the whole setup, of the economy, politics and everything I think. Too much has happened, nothing’s normal. But, generally speaking, from the half term at the end of February, it starts to increase, with Easter being our first really big one. Do you get quite a lot of Europeans coming over? Yes. A lot of Germans. But that is down in great part to the books and dramatisations of Rosamunde Pilcher. Her books are extremely popular in Germany. They’ve um, serialised many of them for television. Apparently they tend to show them on a Sunday evening at somewhere around sort of seven till nine. Very popular family viewing time to wind down the weekend and the scenery is fantastic for the filming. So it brings a lot of them here. Not necessarily to search out the places but because they think it looks so great. Do you know where Zennor is? Its uh, its lovely, its got really nice views. So, and there’s always loads of nice people coming in. Do you get a lot of people coming in. Is this quite a popular café? Very. So how come you don’t live in Zennor? ‘Cause I live somewhere else. Do you think you ever could live in Zennor? Uh yeh, err when I get a car. I probably could. Do you mind if I ask how old you are then? I’m seventeen. Are you learning to drive at the moment? I am, yeah. Um did you? When do you reckon you will pass? Hopefully soon, but I’ve only had like five lessons. Do you think Zennor has all the amenities that you could need or do you think you will be somewhat limited in terms of what you can kind of do here? Nah, I think it’s got everything you need and St. Ives is close by if it hasn’t. Would you travel there quite a lot do you reckon, for kind of larger shopping and things like that? Yeah I probably would. Do you know where Zennor is? Perfect. All you have to do is just look around you. And, and then you will see it. Heh. It’s so beautiful, so, so beautiful.

To truly travel is to discover. To truly discover one must first discover within oneself, travel through the mind and explore the darkest corners of the soul. To come face to face with truths otherwise unknown and reach depths of knowledge never before encountered. After 115 miles of travelling by bicycle I have discovered one universal truth; Cornwall is really really hilly.
