Porthcurno Telegraph Museum

One of the interesting aspects of Cornwall is how working structures have become tourist attractions and the Porthcurno Telegraph Museum is one of those. In an age of mobile phones, satellites and broadband, people forget that up until fairly recently, the only way to contact America by telephone was via large cables that run under the Atlantic Ocean and those cables are connected at Porthcurno. Cable and Wireless still have an interest in the area, but this museum shows the history including secret wartime tunnels.
