Cape Cornwall is a small headland down in the far west of the county and lies four miles north of Lands End and is near to the town of St Just. Cape Cornwall (in cornish: Kilt Good Just, meaning" goose back of St Just. Here you'll a chimney stack that dates back when there was a small tin mine on this site. It operated intermittently between 1838 and 1883, after it closed permanently the engine house was demolished. The mine 1864 chimney was kept as near the peak of the cape as an aid to navigation.

In a field off of the Cape Cornwall Road stands the remains of an old chapel; St. Helen's oratory, which dates back as far as the roman - christian times. An ancient cross with Chi - Rho monogram, was discovered on the site in the mid nineteenth century by John Buller, the vicar of St Just, but was sadly lost when his successor at the vicarage purportedly threw the cross down a well, where it is still remains to this day. A few metres away form the chapel stands a single of Donald Arthur Payne and Margaret "Ann" Wheeler, little is known about the two people who occupy this grave.
