Our Projects - Rosenithon
This section of the Coast Path on the Lizard Peninsula runs from Godrevy Cove, near Dean Quarries, to the small remote village of Rosenithon and follows a watercourse in a valley, which takes water from a system of ponds, highway water, surrounding slopes and ditches. At times of high rainfall and flash flooding the valley becomes saturated and surface water collects and runs onto the path from a variety of sources, causing surface scour as it collects and increases in velocity. The resultant damage to the surface creates a very uneven surface with trip hazards for walkers. Despite previous efforts to deflect the water from the path, it has repeatedly suffered damage. Thanks to funds raised by the South West Coast Path Association and from the Unlocking our Coastal Heritage project, this project was completed.
