High Dive on the South West Coast Path?

A backpacker’s dream or nightmare? Nearly 30,000 stairs, wind that can blow off a toupee and–a high dive? That is what I thought I would see at the end of this straightway near Boscastle, England, on the South West Coast Path. But it was just another steep plunge on the 630-mile trail.

  1. I section walked the South West Coast Path over a number of years. On one particularly memorable, and (as it turned out) dangerously windy, section in north Cornwall I had to crawl along the cliff path on my hands and knees and walk along a field instead…

      1. I have had the weather forecast conversation with myself so many times – I always look to see if rain is forecast but usually forget to see what it has to say about wind… 🤦‍♀️
