Cornwall North coast - St Agnes to Cligga head

St Agnes is really a bit inland and the beach is Trevaunance Cove. Going northwards from St Agnes, is some great beach scrambling to Trevellas Porth at low tide, then onto more recent mineral working and WW2 stuff. Some awesome cliff erosion with man and elements combined.

I suppose I have an additional affection for Trevaunance Cove as it was my first experience of this coast when I worked at Driftwood Spars Hotel when I was 18
