Zennor is a village and civil parish in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. The parish includes the villages of Zennor, Boswednack and Porthmeor and the hamlet of Treen. Zennor lies on the north coast, about 6mi north of Penzance, along the B3306 road which connects St Ives to the A30 road. Alphabetically, the parish is the last in Britain. Its name comes from the Cornish name for the local saint, Saint Senara.Zennor Head is a coastal promontory north of the village. The cliffs rise over 200ft from the sea and the highest point of the headland is 314ft above sea level. The village itself is at a height of around 110m.Zennor lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Almost a third of Cornwall has AONB designation, with similar status and protection as a National Park.About a mile east of the village is the Zennor Quoit megalithic site.Helen Dunmore's 1993 novel Zennor in Darkness is set in and around the village in 1917 when D. H. Lawrence lived nearby. Zennor is also mentioned in the Ulysses Moore series of books, written by Pierdomenico Baccalario; in fact near Zennor and Saint Ives there would be the mysterious hamlet of Kilmore Cove, the place where the series is mainly set.
