From the Camel Estuary west to St Ives
"'Twas a Giant by the name of Bedruthan who used the stacks as stepping stones to cross the bay... or so the nineteenth century fairy-tale would have you believe. More likely, the steps of Bedruthan were those of the original "steps" or path down the cliff to the beach!"
North Cornwall, or at least that part that is still the north coast of Cornwall, extends west from the Camel Estuary, as far as Hayle and St Ives. Again the character of the north coast is different to the south coast, much as the character of North Cornwall itself is different from that of the Lizard. It is these differences that contribute making Cornwall so special to both visitors and locals alike.
