    It says 'Start Point' on the post, so I'm gonna take a shot in the dark and say it's at Start Point.

    The South West coast path is very long. Penzance to St Ives is about ten miles across country, or something daft like 40 miles round the coast path. There are also lots of estuaries without bridges so if you wanted to walk round the coast without recourse to ferries you're looking at huge detours round the Dart, Camel, Exe and Fal estuaries.

    Intersting fact: it was the bewildering nature of Britain's coastline and the impossibility of accurately measuring it which first inspired the field of fractal geometry. The UK has more coastline than Mexico, despite Mexico having about eight times as much land as well as extensive peninsulas and numerous islands.

    Porthcothan, not far up the coast from here, has some wonderful rock formations including a huge collapsed cave system.

    From there up to Tintagel is pretty much the best bit of coast in the country.
