Finding Marconi

Guglielmo Marconi, was an Italian inventor and electrical engineer, known for his pioneering work on long-distance radio transmission.

The birthplace of long-range wireless is an area surrounded by oceans, so remote it feels like the edge of the world: Cornwall’s Lizard peninsula, the southernmost part of Great Britain. The area is famous for its dramatic cliff walks, wild flowers and geological features, including the local Serpentine Rock.

On a recent research trip to find the Marconi Wireless Station on the lizard, we saw the shack from many different view points but didn’t actually get to it as the weather turned wet and misty.
