Our View

This 14-mile stretch of coast runs westwards from the holiday resort of St Ives to the mining village of Pendeen, and is some of the most beautiful in south-west England. Between the road and the 300ft-high cliff lies the wave-sculptured plateau that was once submerged beneath an ancient sea. Here the classic pattern of Penwith farming, based on original prehistoric radial field systems, is clearly revealed. Above, the moors of West Penwith show their lonely summits crowned with rocky tors. Flower-filled paths lead to heather-clad slopes and ancient remnants reveal a distant past.
