Walk - Gwithian Towans
2.3 miles (3.8 km)
Gwithian National Trust car park - TR27 5ED Gwithian NT car park
Easy - The walk is mostly level, on sandy paths that may be wet, a track, a quiet road, beach or dunes.
A brief stroll across the dunes (the Gwithian Towans) to the village of Gwithian, where the church replaces two earlier chapels that were both engulfed in sand. The whole area is a Site of Special Scientific Interest for the geology and wildlife that have both been created by sand driven in by Atlantic storms, and places once buzzing with industrial activity associated with mining are now tranquil Local Nature Reserves.
