It is situated on the Penwith peninsula approximately four miles south of Penzance.In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries Lamorna became popular with artists of the Newlyn School. It is particularly associated with the artist S. J. "Lamorna" Birch who lived there. The colony included Birch, Alfred Munnings, Laura Knight and Harold Knight.
