Carleon Cove Beach

Carleon Cove is a rocky cove approached down a long incline with cobbles along part of its length, then a bridge over a very pretty stream.

Now deserted, Carleon Cove used to operate a pilchard fishery until the mid 19th century. The pilchard cellar buildings were later extended to accommodate a steam engine, used to power machinery for cutting and polishing serpentine, and a stream was deepened to allow flat-bottomed barges to ferry the products out to ships.

Park at the National Trust Poltesco and walk down to the cove.
