Although I didn't do a lot of the SWCP, I'll put some pics here, as and when I get my blog posts out, keep it tidy and not start another thread.


Station at Carbis Bay, heading towards St Ives on the coastal path.

I'm releasing blog posts day by day, so I'll put some pics here as well. For more pics see the blog. Thanks for looking.

Day 2 saw me taking the coastal path in the opposite direction towards Hayle. It's a narrow track very high up with mostly fantastic views.


Looking back at Carbis Bay.



Coming towards Hayle.



The section after that follows the road past Lelant, and Lelant Saltings Station. Around the bend following the road to Hayle.


Nice gardens to look at.



A bimble around Hayle. I took a different route back following tracks and roads.



12 miles walked that day.

On the Sunday I got the bus to Camborne, and a bus to Portreath, and started walking from there along the coastal path towards Hayle. It was very up and down hills, with fantastic views.


Leaving Portreath, looking back



Short route very steep, longer route not quite so steep.






Godrevy Island Lighthouse.






I was hoping to get a bus back to Carbis Bay, at Hayle, looked at the timetable, no buses. Went to the station to see if there was a train. Nope, no train. Nothing for it but to carry on walking. 16 miles in total that day.

Wonderful colours in the lighthouse photo.
So glad your holiday was successful but public transport is pretty hit and miss - mostly miss.
Off to Portreath myself next week for a few days.  Going to explore the Great Lode trail plus bimbles on the coast path again.
So many paths, so little time

A day at Penzance. I went on the bus, and walked back. 





Morrab Gardens












I walked along the coastal path towards Marazion, then turned north along minor roads and tracks back to Carbis Bay. I have been to St Michael's Mount on a previous visit.








It was a smashing day out.

Ooops, forgot Padstow, did that the day before. Walked from Wadebridge to Padstow and got the bus back.








Need to get the ferry if you are doing the South West Coastal Path. I didn't.



This is where the ferry crosses.



That's it. The end.  ilona

Thank you. This maybe should be in the South West section, but as it has bits of the coastal path in it, maybe leave it here. The mods can move it if they think it fits better elsewhere.
