Around Godrevy

At last a respite from the rains!  Today was bright and sunny, and very cold (4C); perfect conditions for a 3 mile walk on the North Cliffs, west of the 3mile long Gwythian Beach. In my Camborne School of Mines days I spent many lunch hours walking this area, with its rugged 60m high cliffs and precipitous drops.

Close to the Camborne-Reduth copper and tin mining area, this is a heavily faulted area, subject to intense erosion and spectacular landslides, a recent one being caught on video.
