Godrevy Lighthouse (c) Andrew Benham
Working your way up behind the Lifeguard building and taking the path between some garages and you are soon, via a long slog up a grassy track, on top of North Cliffs, some of the highest in West Cornwall. They are probably the crumbliest too, not for climbing and as much mud as they are rock. In places the path is VERY close to the edge; today it was windy enough for this to feel a bit worrying in places.
This run is essentially flat, once the first couple of miles are dispensed with; a pair of steep sets of steps being the only exception.
From here it is usually easy going; though today the conditions underfoot were so wet and muddy and the wind so strong that it felt anything but.
When you reach Godrevy take a left, head down through a grassy field (car park in the summer) and then turn right to circumnavigate the headland before heading back. The bay at the top of the cliff on the eastern side of the headland is home to seals from October to March so worth stopping for a quick look.
