Chapel Porth is a small cove, just two miles from St. Agnes. This north Cornish cove is renowned for the great surf which can be enjoyed here. At low tide, the white sandy beach stretches from the caves below Wheal Coates Mine in the north, to Porthtowan in the south. The cove is under the care of the National Trust. There is a car park on the beach, toilets and a café, supplying hot and cold food. The RNLI provide a lifeguard service in the summer months.

Chapel Porth is the start of several popular walks. Provided attention is paid to tide tables, there is a spectacular walk along the beach to view the Vugga below Towanroath Pumping Engine House on the cliffs above. Alternatively, there are walks along the cliff top to St. Agnes Headland and Trevaunance Cove, or Porthtowan and Portreath.

About The Photographer

Alison Avery

I hope that you enjoy browsing the photographs on my website. They demonstrate the rich variety of scenery we have in Britain within a relatively short distance. It has been a great pleasure for me to visit different parts of the country to capture the beauty of our countryside, coast and villages. For as long as I can remember, I have loved taking photographs and drawing and painting pictures of British scenes. I am continually adding more photographs to the website.
