Rolling countryside with small fields and woodlands divided by hedges and sunken lanes


The south coast of Penwith vividly expresses the changes in man’s use of the land over time. From towering cliffs keeping watch over the western approaches, to gentle, lush valley slopes, and sun kissed beaches – all is here.

View of White Cliffs of Dover

Urgent White Cliffs appeal 

The White Cliffs of Dover are under threat and we only have a few days left to safeguard them. Land directly behind the clifftop is up for sale and we have until 22 September to raise the funds. This land is vital to the future of the cliffs and costs just £5 per square metre. How many metres will you protect?
