Cornwall is practically all coastline. No part of this famed county is more than 15 miles from the sea. Yet her northern coast could hardly be more different from that of the south, as is revealed through the spectacular photographs in this book and its sister publication South Cornwall Coast from the Air.
Cornwall’s northern coast stands like a castle wall against the battering seas of the Atlantic Ocean. The cliffs here are more rugged on the whole than those which face theWestern Approaches to the English Channel, and take on a more dramatic look. Perilous to shipping over the centuries and bereft of other than a handful of safe anchorages, these shores take the full brunt of the prevailing south-westerly winds.
In this book we are taken on an aerial journey along the North Cornwall coast starting at the border with Devon and heading west for some 60 miles (110km) where we reach one of the most famous locations in Europe, Land’s End.
