SX3454 : Cobland Hill and a Gate

near to Portwrinkle, Cornwall, Great Britain

Cobland Hill and a Gate
Cobland Hill and a Gate
On the South West Coast Path looking towards Cobland Hill at the western side of this grid square. This section of the Coast Path is relatively new, previously walkers had to take the road at the top of the hill. The lack of a good path can probably be explained by the steep unfriendly cliffs hereabouts. The coast path has its origins in paths used by Revenue officers to check on smuggling activities. Where the cliffs were too steep to get goods ashore there was no need to watch them, hence no footpath.
