Walk - Cape Cornwall
5.2 miles (8.3 km)
St Just Market Square - TR19 7HG St Just Market Square
Moderate - The paths are mostly good and the gradients are manageable.
A walk through a tumbledown landscape of old mines and mills, as well as ancient forts, barrows and a fifth-century oratory. Starting in St Just - a small town with a rich mining heritage and England's most westerly town - the walk joins the Coast Path at Kenidjack Castle, the site of an Iron Age fort. From here it travels on around Cape Cornwall, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the English Channel, to Porth Nanven, also known as Dinosaur Egg beach.
This is a Dog-Friendly Walk, passing two beaches and two pubs where dogs are welcome.
