Church Saint. In the foreground St Winwaloe, son of a Cornish prince and his three-breasted wife! They fled to Britanny to avoid plague and raised their little saint who gained his halo after founding a monastery in Britanny. The tower is the remains of a 13th century manor church at Church Cove.
Barrel Vaulting. Fourteenth century barrel vaulting in St Winwaloe church
St Winwaloe (right) was born to a three-breasted woman in Brittany but his dad was a Cornish prince. The other guy is a prince of Yorkshire!

Jangye-ryn - looking towards Rinsey Head
Hells Mouth, Gwithian, Cornwall. Infamous for suicides, you could easily drive off into the sea, but now you must jump instead of drive.
Mylor Church. Parts of the church are Norman, although it suffered at the hands of Victorian 'restorers'. But still a delight with the waters of the creek clearly visible to the gravestones.
Mylor Harbour. Well the Yellow Welly brigade have got to have somewhere to park
Mylor Tombs. Gravestones which face onto Mylor Creek a tributary of Carrick Roads and the place of work and/or the place of death of many of those that lie beneath.
Mylor Tomb for Warriors. The sinking of the Queens Transport gave a watery grave to nearly 200 men women and children returning from fighting on one of Wellington's campaigns, with hundreds more injured. The event was ghastly and ghoulish and makes the Titantic disaster look like a slight dunking by comparison.
Port Isaac Harbour. 'Port Isaac' supposedly refers to an early trade in corn, but most commerce by sea was to do with fish, enhanced by the coming of the railways which enabled fresh fish to go to markets in London
Port Isaac Town. Also known as 'Port Cameron' after the PM who was holidaying here when his wife gave birth in 2010.

Port Quin from the seaward side. This little 'fijord' leads up to the one time fishing village of Port Quin
Doyden Castle on Doyden Point at the entrance to Port Quin. Built as a retreat for a rich businessman in 1830 who used it for outrageous parties

Red hot Port. Red Hot Pokers act as sentries to the sea entrance for Port Isaac, with Lobber Point visible behind
Sunflower Cornish. A field of Sunflowers at Roscarrock near Port Isaac
Tin Coast. Looking northeast from the mouth of Port Isaac up towards Tintagel Head. The Gull is more interested in sandwiches than in sea views!
