Northern Door, The Strangles

Looking south from the cliffs of the Strangles, you can see successive headlands all the way down the coast, most of which seem to have a small rocky island sitting slightly offshore and out among the waves. At the base of the Strangles cliffs you can see a formation called the Northern Door, the height… Continue reading Northern Door, The Strangles

Ludon Valley, Crackington Haven

I have posted some pictures from East Woods before and it turns out, although I got that name from the signpost pointing the way to it, that I should be calling it Ludon Valley. Now people from the Crackington area won't be scratching their heads wondering where the heck the place I said I walked… Continue reading Ludon Valley, Crackington Haven

Roughtor’s Random Rocks

Around the base of the main huge granite boulders making the summit of Roughtor are many random smaller stones. There is no pattern, just hundreds of assorted and irregular slabs strewn around the place. A few are standing, maybe manoeuvred in a long ago history to point up at a significant object in the night… Continue reading Roughtor’s Random Rocks

Granite Gatepost, Warbstow

Devon and Cornwall quite famously sit on a massive amount of granite, with the tors of the nearby moorlands made out of outcrops of the hard rock. You will often also come across standing stones on the moors, the plentiful and hard wearing material perhaps fashioned and arranged by ancient hands for ceremonial religious uses,… Continue reading Granite Gatepost, Warbstow

Devon from Cornwall

I have mentioned the all-encompassing views from Warbstow Bury before. Standing on the ancient earthworks from the remains of the fort site you have views out into the Bristol Channel, including Lundy Island about thirty miles distant, plus out towards the moors of Exmoor, Dartmoor and the much nearer Bodmin Moor. This one is out… Continue reading Devon from Cornwall

Incoming tide at Tremoutha

Just climbing the coastpath south, just barely out of Crackington Haven, you come across Tremoutha, the next cove along. There isn't an easy access to the beach here, any faint  pathway has long since grown over, so access may only be relatively safely gained by skipping and scrambling around the small headland and over the… Continue reading Incoming tide at Tremoutha
