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

Zennor Head to Pendeen Watch

The landscape is beautifully wild and rugged and the area around the parish of Zennor is designated both an Environmentally Sensitive Area and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are many Bronze and Iron Age field systems along this part of the coast, with cliffs rising to nearly 100 metres at Zennor Head. The path can be narrow and rough in places and all amenities require inland detours, so it is advisable to allow plenty of time and stock up on provisions at the beginning of the day. Pendeen Watch lighthouse has been guiding ships through this area for over a hundred years, its fairly squat white tower measuring 17 metres.
