St Levan & Porthgwarra – Clifftop Hike
Join us for this 3-4 hour, circular walk between St Levan and Porthgwarra, one of the Hikes provided by Heritage Adventures, as part of our range of authentic, high-quality, guided tours, exploring West Cornwall’s rich history on foot or by boat.
As you hike along the clifftop to Porthgwarra and back through the fields to St Levan Churchtown, learn about this coastline’s fascinating past, stretching back into early prehistory.
With the help of your guide, professional archaeologist Jeanette Ratcliffe, discover an early Christian hermitage and medieval parish church, a coastguard lookout on the site of a Napoleonic signal station and daymarks for shipping, and evidence of Cornwall’s 19th century pilchard fishery and 20th telecommunications espionage.
