HIGHER SHARPNOSE POINT MORWENSTOW CORNWALL

The amazing coastline just a few miles from me. This was taken looking north from Higher Sharpnose Point towards Lucky Hole and Cotton Beach just south of Hawkers Hut, near Morwenstow north of Bude in Cornwall, England, UK. A notoriously treacherous coastline for shipping and with stories of smuggling and wreckers luring ships to their doom with false lights. The Reverend Robert Hawker was a local historic figure being the eccentric vicar of Morwenstow who rescued and buried shipwrecked sailors and helped create the harvest festival as we now know it.

The walking is great, a little up and down in places but worth the effort as the views are superb. Maybe a little tough for someone with vertigo! The North Devon coast, in the neighbouring county, is lovely too.

I was able to find this spot in Google Earth. Beautiful location! That path near the edge might be a bit of a tough go :-) I have a Facebook friend in Four Lanes and have discovered that much of Cornwall is quite beautiful.
