  • Godrevy Lighthouse, St Ives Bay, Cornwall. Built in 1858/9 Godrevy Lighthouse guards the eastern edge of St Ives Bay. Its octagonal tower is 26m high. Virginia Woolf first visited St Ives on 12 September 1892, staying at Talland House. It is said that she was so captivated by the view of the lighthouse across the bay that it inspired her to write the novel 'To the lighthouse', though in her book she relocated the lighthouse to the Isle of Skye!

  • Carnewas & Bedruthan Steps. This impressive piece of coastline is found on the North Coast of Cornwall on the South West Coast Path between Newquay and Padstow. (The National Trust owns and maintains the car park, shop, cafe and steps to the beach, though not the beach itself). The shop and cafe are former mine buildings of Carnewas Mine. The rocks here include mid-Devonian slates and are one of the few places in Cornwall that fossils can be found. Although not very common, fossils of fish, corals, trilobites have been recorded. The name Bedruthan Steps is said to be taken from a mythological giant called 'Bedruthan' who used the rocks (stacks) on the beach as stepping stones. There are no ancient records of this being traditional folklore however, and the consensus seems to the that the tale is a late nineteenth century invention for Victorian tourists.

  • Thrift (Sea Thrift, Sea Pink) or Armeria maritima can be found growing on most cliffs throughout Cornwall where its low growing habit and tolerance to salt give it an advantage. Unlike many plants Thrift is very also tolerant to metals, particularly copper, in the soil and is one of the first plants to colonise former mining areas. While, as the name implies it is usually pink in colour it can range from almost pure white to a vivid red and even purple.

  • The Brisons from the South West Coast Footpath at Roscommon Head. The Brisons is a small twin-peaked island about a mile offshore from Cape Cornwall. They and are said to resemble General Charles de Gaulle lying on his back In 1851, the ship 'New Commercial' ran aground on the Brisons. Despite rescue attempts all but two of the crew were lost. As a result, the National Institution for the Preservation of Life from Shipwreck (later the RNLI) established a lifeboat in Sennen Cove and one is based their to this day. Look out for the Brisons in the background on Poldark! Please feel free to share/comment/tag or like, this photo and any other photos from my facebook page.

  • The South West Coast Path shared a link. South Devon's coastline between Hope Cove and Salcombe is Clare Balding's favourite stretch of the Coast Path! Hear all about it from her interview with Simon Mayo on BBC Radio 2's drive time. Go forward 1 hour 18 minutes. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05mqdy8 www.bbc.co.uk more
  • Covered Mineshaft, Chapel Porth, Nr St Agnes. Cornwall is littered with old minshafts and the coast around St Agnes in no exception. The abandoned shafts are often home to colonies of bats. This covered shaft is just off the south west coast path on the cliffs at Chapel Porth. This type of conical cage seems to have been been preferred throughout the old Kerrier district council area, making the shaft safe while still allowing the bats to have access.
