Wharf Road, Penzance | Coming Soon
This retirement development is waiting planning permission.
Standing on the shores of Mount's Bay, Penzance has a wealth of good shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Market Jew Street, a busy shopping street, connects with the harbour area through the Wharfside Shopping Centre. A short distance beyond the harbour whose inner dock shelters fishing boats, visiting yachts and the occasional tall-masted sailing ship againist the granite quays.
The name Penzance comes from two Cornish words, pen and sans, meaning 'holy headland'. The holy headland in question is just opposite the Jubilee Pool in St Anthony Gardens, where the tiny chapel of St Anthony, built in the 6th century, once stood.
