I have walked the Cornwall Coastal Path from St Just to Pendeen Watch many times in the past but todays walk has been somewhat special because of the glorious winter sunshine we’re having in Cornwall. Today was 13 degrees, so shorts and short sleeves was the order of the day.
I started in St Just and walked down to Cape Cornwall and then onto the coastal path down in to Kenidjack valley before climbing the other side and heading over to Botallack and the Crowns mine buildings located on the edge of the cliffs. You then head along the coastal path towards Levant mine and its numerous buildings, the engine house, count house and old compressor house with its huge chimney which over looks the whole Levant mine area.
The path then goes down to the bottom of what is now Geevor mine, or Trewellard Zawn before climbing up and over the Avarack which is a rocky outcrop which gives superb views over Levant and Pendeen Watch Lighthouse.
The path then decends slightly before climbing again as you join up with the access road to Pendeen Lighthouse.
