Cornwall – The South-East Coast

[  Photograph Gallery #70  ]

Moving west from the coast of Somerset, which was the subject of my last photographic gallery  ( See –  ‘Coleridge and Watchet’ ), I intend, over the next few weeks, to offer some of the photographs which I have taken in England’s western-most county, Cornwall, mainly in its coastal areas, on my several visits there over the last ten or so years.  I begin today on the south-eastern coast of the county, covering part of the area between Cothele on the border with Devonshire and Fowey (pronounced (Foy).

  1. Thank you so much for sharing these. I’m living vicariously. Sounds pitiful I know, but sitting in Texas with only a remote possibility of traveling there, it’s wonderful to get these glimpses.

  2. A great share Roland with the photos and description. In my opinion, one of the more beautiful parts of the UK and looking forward to seeing more in future posts.

    • Thank you, Eugenia. You can discover more about Rame Head promontory if you google it. ‘The chapel you see in the picture is dedicated to St Michael, as are many early Christian headland sites in the region, accessible by a steep footpath. It ‘was first licensed for Mass in 1397 and is on the site of a much earlier and ancient, Celtic, hermitage. It remains as an intact shell and was originally lime-washed so that it stood out on the headland.’

  3. Roland, your photos are beautiful, each one of them and you had a wonderful place to
    record. Like so many here, I also think Cornwall is one of the best beauty spots in England.
    Spent a week there with friends in 2014. Both peaceful and exciting. Falmouth itself is a very interesting town as is the magnificent St. Michael’s Mount.
