Cornwall’s vast landscape once dominated with working engine houses, now competes with wires, towering masts and the National Grid. This book follows the evolution of telecommunication across Cornwall, starting with Marconi’s hub in Porthcurno, which played a huge role in the history of telecommunications. The images travel across the whole of Cornwall documenting well known destinations including, Goonhilly Earth Station and Four Lanes Mast which can be seen for miles around pinpointing one of the highest points in the county.
