BETA PHOTO: A map of the island

Description 

The island of Newfoundland is the most populous part of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Discovered by John Cabot in 1497, the island has been populated almost continuously since then by Europeans who used it as a fishing outpost.

Up until the 1960s the island's coast was clustered with numerous fishing villages, called "outports". Then the provincial government forcibly re-settled most of the population into larger townships, causing the old ways of life and the old towns of the outports today to die, few remain.

Known as "The Rock" The island is just that, a huge rock jutting from the sea, with many sea cliffs and prominent features especially along it's southern and eastern shores.

Little explored due to it's remoteness, it contains a treasure of virgin climbing still waiting to be explored.
