About Penzance OnLine

This site was developed for, and originally sponsored by, Penzance Chamber of Commerce to encourage a greater awareness of the range of facilities and services that exist in, and around, the historic town of Penzance. While there is a comprehensive selection of retail and commercial services available, the town is also an attractive place in which to live and a rewarding place to visit. Details are included on local support services for both the community and its visitors.

In addition to sponsorship by Penzance Chamber of Commerce, the site was financially supported by PESCA, the Government Regional Office for the South-West, Penwith District Council, Penzance Town Council and Lloyds Bank in Penzance. Thanks are expressed to all these bodies for their support without which this site would never have been born!

Initial ideas for the site were formulated during 1998, detail design commenced early in 1999 and the site was launched in May 1999 and a major update was launched in 2014.

While there is considerable 'editorial' and 'informative' content in the site, there are/will be numerous pages and sub-sites accessible from within the site where individual commercial and public providers of goods and services are/will be displaying their 'wares'.

And the technical bit ...
