You could start by looking at caches hidden by Nawtcher and The Crinklys, then seeing if any of the original finders of the oldest of those caches has, themselves, placed an old cache in Cornwall.

 

I used a similar technique, i.e. find old caches placed by the original finders of old caches placed by the original finders of ...(repeat)..., to map out GCxxxx series caches near me. It takes a little while, but the results can be fascinating.
