'PENZANCE - The town-council have, we are informed, purchased the Newlyn Green, extending from near Lariggan Bridge to near the Battery rocks, for a term of a thousand years, at a nominal rent, it being intended to be preserved as a promenade for invalids and others, to enjoy the sea air and prospect, for which purpose, indeed, it has been much resorted to. It is nearly three thousand feet in length, and commands a delightful view of the Mount's Bay.' (The West Briton | 29 November 1839)…
