The walk from Penance and Newlyn to Lamorna is a quite a long one, crossing some very beautiful cliffs and passing through the equally attractive village of Mousehole. After arriving in Lamorna, people would enjoy the scenery of the cove and have picnics. Some would also go with their friends to a local pub called the Lamorna Wink.
If you find a pub in Cornwall called a “wink”, this means it was once an unlicensed beer shop and often a place where people sold smuggled goods. The “wink” name comes from the fact that if you wanted some of the smuggled goods, perhaps brandy or tobacco, you would secretly wink at the landlord, who would then know what you wanted. People still walk to Lamorna every Good Friday and the cliff pathway around the bay is still full of people enjoying the Easter holiday.
