ST Agnes image

Set on the cliff tops high above the Atlantic and in the shadow of the Beacon behind you, St Agnes Head was used as a light anti-aircraft artillery range in the Second World War and during the Napoleonic war it was a rifle range; this seemingly remote and peaceful spot has seen its fair share of activity over the years. Nowadays the headland is a much quieter place to visit. The only busyness you'll discover is from the insects buzzing in and out of the gorse and heather.

You can walk past the old look-out station and gaze out over the patchwork carpet of yellow and purple, with the brilliant blue of the sea beyond.

Chapel Porth beach, Wheal Coates old mine works and Trevaunance Cove are all a stone's throw away. Climb up to the top of the Beacon to take them all in and see for miles and miles.
