I have edited this stub to provide an outline on the history of this piece of England, based on plaques, leaflets and other information seen whilst on holiday. Most items appear on several web pages and have been cut down to the simplest of sentences.

I have not included many cross references to other Wikipedia pages, nor checked what information exists on those pages. Joe1011010 18:42, 23 August 2005 (UTC)

I've added another image of Lizard Point, which is a bit clearer (?), but black and white. Not sure, really. I will bow to the opinions of others. shellac 23:58, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

The Lizard[edit]

There is also a village called the Lizard on the peninsular. Needs an article. 82.152.199.165 (talk) 23:03, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Dimensions of The Lizard[edit]

The article informs the reader that the peninsula is 14 miles (23 km) x 14 miles (23 km). However, it's not footnoted and I can't find any evidence for this statement with a quick search using Google. (The only places that contain this information appear to be mirror sites.) Is there any better evidence for this statement? Michael Glass (talk) 06:35, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

Solar eclipse departed the UK mainland from the Lizard?[edit]

"In 1999, the Solar eclipse of August 11, 1999 departed the UK mainland from the Lizard." Surely, this is not true? - see http://www.eclipse.org.uk/old/eclipse_from_uk.htm The northern limit of totality left the UK south of Exeter. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Teleprinter Sleuth (talkcontribs) 02:18, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

Peninsula[edit]

Looking at the map, I wouldn't classify Lizard as a peninsula at all, at least no more than any other protuberance of land such as the one containing the town of St Mawes, just to the east! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.6.191.45 (talk) 09:15, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

Official sources would disagree with you. For example, http:www.the-lizard.org is a partnership between Natural England, the National Trust, Cornwall Wildlife Trust, NFU and Exeter/Falmouth Universities. It features multiple uses of the word "peninsula". On Wikipedia, facts trump opinions every time. --Bob Re-born (talk) 14:21, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
