Elegantly positioned above and behind Penzance, Madron has stunning views of Mounts Bay. It is also home to the original mother church of the district which displays an array of styles, including stone Tudor roses reputedly fashioned to curry favour with a disgruntled Henry VIII. Penzance being the first town to hear of Admiral Nelson’s death at Trafalgar, a banner created at the time still adorns the walls.
To the north of Madron, on the West Cornwall moors, are several notable ancient sites. These include Lanyon Quoit, Chûn Quoit, Chûn Castle, Men-Scryfa, Boswens Standing Stone and Men-an-Tol, to mention a few.
