The Capper Nomads Europe Adventure travel blog










Our first day of exploration in Cornwall was to make our way through Newquay (not a very inspiring town) north along the coast to Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. This was the start of our walk along the coast and around Park Head.

The name Bedruthan Steps is said to be taken from a mythological giant called 'Bedruthan' who used the rocks (stacks) on the beach as stepping stones believed to be an invention for Victorian tourists.

Carnewas was the name of the mine which between 1871 and 1874 mined haematite (iron oxide) from the cliffs.

Walking along the coastal path we had stunning views of the steps and further along walking around Park Head the rugged coastline of the north coast. We sat on the top of Park Head for our lunch enjoying the views and the sunshine before heading back to the car at Carnewas.
