Gribben Head

Last Friday we went for a walk at Menabilly a new place for us. It turned out to be a beautiful day and the walk was delightful, it took us through fields, a small wood then up to Gribben tower then along the coastal path.  Here are some of the photos taken.


The 84 feet (26 m) high square beacon tower was erected by Trinity House in 1832 to distinguish the Gribben from Dodman Point and St Anthony’s Head, and thus make navigation into Fowey and the harbours of St Austell Bay safer. It was never lighted, but is painted in broad red and white bands as a daymark.[5] [6]
