Gribbin open days 2017

Ever fancied seeing what it's like inside the Gribbin Daymark?

The red and white striped tower can be seen from many places in Cornwall's south coast.

Every year a group of intrepid volunteers open up the daymark for people to climb and take in the fantastic panoramic views.

Built in 1832 by Trinity House, it was originally an aid for navigation so that sailors wouldn't mistake the shallow waters around St Austell Bay for the deep waters of Falmouth harbour.

It stands at 84 feet high, so there are quite a few steps on the way up; but it's worth every one, once you emerge out of the top hatch and into 360 degrees of land and sea views.

Kind donations have enabled us to keep the tower in good condition and open to the public.

Open each Sunday from 11am to 5pm. National Trust members climb for free; £1 everyone else.
