One of the Coast Path's most magical walks. At St Nectan's Kieve the River Trevillet plunges down a 60-foot waterfall with such force that it has carved a series of basins in the rock. From here it flows through St Nectan's Glen and on past the ruins of a medieval mill, where the carvings on the rock-face are said to be almost 4000 years old. On the last leg of its journey to the sea it tumbles and splashes through the deep canyon it has sculpted through a breathtakingly beautiful wilderness. As a bonus there is St Piran's Well, where the patron saint of Cornish miners is said to have fallen to his death, at the age of 200, after too much to drink.
