Porthnanven Beach (St Just) Photo

Porthnanven Beach (St Just) - Cornwall

Ruined mine workings in the Cot Valley

The stream in this photo runs along the Cot Valley and joins the sea below at Porth Nanven. On the left (and behind the photographer) are the remains of mine workings that accompanied the various shafts in the surrounding cliffs and hills. The rocky islands out to sea are The Brisons, with a profile perhaps unkindly likened to General de Gaulle lying on his back.
