Marconi - Centre - Monument

Located atop the cliffs at Poldhu Cove

It's doubtful whether even Marconi, listening on Signal Hill, St. John’s, Newfoundland in 1901 could have imagined the significance of an extremely short signal he had just received, nor what it would lead to. From little acorns.... that first transatlantic radio signal introduced everything from broadcasting to satellite communications, mobile phones, broadband, the internet and the world wide web - and Poldhu was at the forefront of it all.
