The Pendennis Headland and the Ships and Castles Leisure Centre in Falmouth, Cornwall has officially been transferred from Cornwall Council to Falmouth Town Council for £1. The handover followed an unanimous vote by Cornwall Council’s Cabinet in December 2022 to transfer the freehold of the building and headland.
Securing the heritage of the headland, the deal also includes a 125-year lease to the leisure centre, which closed in 2022, to the Pendennis Leisure charity. The charity will be reopening the building as a community centre in the short-term, hoping to include a 25m pool and multifunctional activity centre in the long run.
