Route Filmstrip & Description

Cameron camp was a Second World War training camp for light anti-aircraft artillery. It can be found on the North Cornish coast just west of St Agnes Head and below the St Agnes Beacon. The main part of the route consists of a Metalled access road that is open to cars. This road is a dead end and only takes you to the camp so traffic is likely to be light except in high summer. Partway down the lane there is a height barrier but there is parking at various places before then.
