|Description ||Not the easiest cross to find, but well-worth it. I believe I read that this is the only three-holed cross in Cornwall, but it looks to me as if it just wasn't finished. This close-up was taken in June 2005, one sunny evening. Harder to find was nearby St Piran's Lost Oratory, now buried and marked with a slab of granite. From this cross, head towards the huge modern cross on the sand-dunes. The sprawling campsite at Perranporth spoils the views here.|
|Lovely lichen. This was the very first Cornish cross that I ever saw - way back in 1967. We walked all the way from Trevelgue Head t'other side of Newquay.|
