There’s a tradition down here of walking from Mousehole to Lamorna on Good Friday. It’s been around for years, and still today, you can just turn up to the start of the walk and there’s a whole crowd of people ready to do the walk.
Originally it was a time and place for singles to meet each other. It used to be almost the whole population of Penzance and Newlyn wold join in on the walk! Nowadays it’s definitely a smaller group (and even smaller groups because of Covid), but the spirit of the walk still continues on.
It’s a great tradition, and often the weather is great, with small, colourful coastal flowers appearing along the coast, and the scent of Gorse strong in the air. After the sombre elemental-ness of winter, it’s a joyful sight to see!
