On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Porthcurno to Larmorna Cove

On a clear day, there are fantastic views across the sea out to Bishop’s Rock Lighthouse and the Isles of Scilly. Birds such as fulmars, shags, rock pipits and occasional peregrine falcons can be seen along this stretch and the incredible geological formations, including offshore rock stacks and rippling cliffs. The Merry Maidens Stone Circle is a mile inland from Lamorna. There is a well-known tradition that the stones represent maidens who were turned into stone for dancing on the Sabbath. The Lamorna Wink, once an illegal beer house is now a recommended pub.
