Cookworthy Knapp, or The ‘Coming Home’ or ‘Nearly There’ trees are a famous sight on the A30 to returning residents of Kernow or travellers coming to holiday in Cornwall. They are situated at Lifton near the Devon/Cornwall border and were originally planted by a farmer around 1900. It is said that the copse of beech trees was planted in a heart shape (when viewed from the air) for his wife. There’s even a facebook group!
