Cornwall remembers Margaret Thatcher
Being the first woman Prime Minister of Great Britain ensured Margaret Thatcher was rarely out of the public eye.
On the limited occasions she was able to relax from her political duties, she and her husband Denis found solace in Cornwall where the couple regularly took holidays.
The Prime Minister fell in love with Constantine Bay and, during her years in power, she and Denis were often seen on the beach and in the surrounding area.
