I just thought I'd share a few pics from my recent trip to Penzance.

Spectacular photographs!  O0  Thank you, I think, of these reminders of far and away the most difficult of the NTs.
 
Would rather do another LEJOG than the SWCP again! :o

Some great photo's there.
I completed the SWCP last month. I did St. Ives to Falmouth over 8 days last summer. Fantastic walk, and at the top of my list to revisit.

Thanks for the nice remarks everyone.

I completed the SWCP in May. I was originally going to start doing some of the Welsh coast this autumn but I left it late and decided to redo some of the best bits of the SWCP. Penzance is particularly convenient because I was able to do 4 sections between St. Ives and Porthleven using buses to get to start and end points.

I was particularly pleased to be able to do the section between Pendeen Watch and St. Ives in better weather than I had the first time. I think it might be the best section of the entire path.

i agree that pendeen watch to st ives is one of the best sections, the old engine houses just give it a special atmosphere


great photos, brings back memories of one of the best stretches of this great walk

Top pics.
Porthleven fish and chip shop sticks in my mind from years ago.

Is it still there?
