Walking The Cornish Cliffs And Coastal Path
The previous Cornish walk I wrote about was on a cold, dark, dismal day. We headed off again last Friday, it was still very cold but it was a clear day with blue sky.
The photos tell of one of the reasons why we chose to live in Cornwall. To think this is only about three miles from our house - what's there not to like!
We started out at a small place called Trenarren, on the Cornish south coast and just walked the coastal path, passing Black Head and then mostly along cliffs looking out to sea.
One of the great things about Cornwall is that it's possible to wander completely around all of the Cornish coast on a coastal footpath. No restrictions, it's all a public right of way.
Some of the path is a bit uneven, and rough but at other places there are even steps to help climb the cliff edges - as shown in the photos above and below.
Looking inland on this particular section of the footpath there are mostly farmers' fields, usually fenced off, but often there are also public rights of way across these fields. These should have markers indicating where it's okay to walk.
From the fields there are still sea views to enjoy ...
... and even the cattle seem to appreciate the scenery.
The National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act 1949 offers special landscape protection for this area in Cornwall.
