path replacemnent for N.T.

During 2014 we carried out some maintenance and laid extra paths within Penrose for the National Trust. The path leading from Loe Bar to Porthleven is part of the long distance coastal path. It is well used causing erosion by footfall and frequent Atlantic storms.

Many Changes to the path from

Porthleven to Loe Bar

At one time it was possible to drive along the cliff top from Porthleven to Loe Bar. Families would drive out there for a picnic but never entered the water as they were aware of its dangers and under currents. Once caught in a rip current there was little chance of survival. Erosion caused by winter gales gradually claimed the drivable track until it finally became a footpath. 2018 was no different and once again the path had to be moved in land.

History Repeating itself

A winter storm in January 2018 resulted in the path being closed once again. Countryside Contracting was engaged once again by the National Trust to create a new coastal path from Porthleven to Loe Bar. The path was moved in land saving it from further erosion for the foreseeable future. New paths, new bridges, new seats and new fencing.
