South West Coast Path Walking From Trenarren, Cornwall

South West Coastal Path, Cornwall

The photos are from last year. We parked the car near Trenarren with the aim of walking for a while along the South West Coast Path - photo as above.

But first we had to walk along a lane and through the mixture of cottages of the small hamlet of Trenarren. There was a Post Box  - some people still use them! When you look back how exciting it was to receive handwritten letters - much more intimate than the emails of today.

The cottages were alive with pretty flowers

And some people hope to receive post.

The lane turned into the path, as below - and at the end of the path there was a steep slope leading to the Coastal Path - as per the first photo.

I never get tired of the Coast Path and find it strange that so few people seem to actually walk the path.

    1. Thank you very much for leaving a comment.

  2. It is a lovely path as your photo's illustrate. Maybe it's a plus point that not many folk use it.

    1. You are so right David - especially in the summer season - it's nice to walk where there aren't too many people.
