This was Cornwall the other day, taken from the top of Rame Head. Whenever we go sailing and head out west, it’s always Rame Head which is the final guiding point on the journey home. The old chapel which sits on top of the peak has a hypnotic presence: it’s a tough old building made out of the local slate and dates back to the fourteenth century, although there was believed to be a Celtic hermitage there before that. Its prominent position means that it has always been used as a watch point and for many years a beacon was lit at night to warn ships that they had one leg further to sail before reaching Plymouth. Standing on the top as I was the other day, you’re entirely swallowed up by the immense Cornish seascape.
