Perranporth to St Agnes Beacon
2000 ft of ascent
Word of the day: Industrial
Left Perranporth and walked straight into a landscape dominated by mining. Capped shafts and spoil heaps everywhere. Sketched at Cligga Head looking down a tall cliff with a rock wall full of niches. Later stopped to sketch Green Island just before St Agnes. Met a couple of photographers from London; bumped into them again at a cafe at Trevaunce Cove.
Walked on around St Agnes Head where it was really windy. Then stopped at Wheal Coates (NT owned mine) before heading inland to a campsite at Beacon Cottage Farm. Walked the mile back to St Agnes village for provisions and dinner at the excellent St Agnes Hotel. Got a bit damp on the walk back to the campsite.
