Route Filmstrip & Description

A short walk around national trust property at St. Anthony Head. Militarily St Anthony has been an important site as far back as 1700s. There have been several gun batteries here, the most recent World War II battery is still very much in evidence. There is only limited scope for wheelchairs and small mobility scooters, however there are other parts that can be explored on suitable vehicles. Clicking "Show Extra Points" below with the map will reveal photographs of additional paths which can be explored, with care, if you have a suitable scooter or power chair. www.cornwallrollingramblers.org.uk
