Wheal Coates to Chapel Porth

We set off on a coastal walk in bright sunshine today. About five minutes into the walk the sunshine turned a shade of grey and the rain began to smite us. We tried to ignore the rain, playing around in the old engine houses along the coast of St Agnes. For a few minutes we had a stunning, dry view across the cliffs and out to sea. This part of the Cornish coast has been made even more famous recently by the Poldark series on BBC.

As we left the engine house the rain started. We marched on, along the coastal path, towards the cafe at Chapel Porth. We stopped for a quick cuppa then scrambled up the steepest part of the hill, as the crow flies, to the summit of Chapel Porth. Charlie and I raced it then sat and watched the girls struggle, like true gents.

Tomorrow we are planning to walk Roughtor and Brown Willy. This was a good warm up, although cut short by the unpredictable Cornish weather.
