Priest's Cove

Priest's Cove is to the west of Cape Cornwall. It is a tiny fishing cove dominated by the bulking cliffs of the Cape.
The Cape and cove were donated to the National Trust by the Heinz food company in the 1980's.
A swimming race takes place between the cove and the outcrop of rocks known as The Brisons.
