St Agnes is a pretty fishing village close to Perranporth, and some of the best Perranporth walks take in this nearby resort. The St Agnes Heritage Trail is made up of ten picturesque walks around the village, and a great example is St Agnes Beacon Walk.
This walk passes the Beacon summit, Wheal Coates mine, St Agnes Head, Bawden Rocks and Trevaunance Cove. St Agnes Beacon was once used to display warning fires for the village in times of trouble. Although no longer used as a beacon, it’s still the best vantage point for views around St Agnes, and on a clear day you can see all the way to St Austell!
