Kingsand, Cornwall

Kingsand and Cawsand are twin villages in southeast Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. The villages are situated on the Rame Peninsula and in the parish of Maker-with-Rame. Until boundary changes in 1844 Kingsand was in Devon; Cawsand, however, was always in Cornwall. On the old county boundary between the two villages there is still a house called Devon Corn, which has the marker on the front of the house. The villages are popular with tourists but retain their traditional character.
