Terence Coventry sculpture

Introduction: This is not so much a “walk” as a “stroll”, suitable perhaps for a fine evening

I have included this as a walk in its own right as the Terence Coventry Sculpture Park is a hidden (and free) gem. It is “hidden” in the sense that there seems to be little publicity about its existence and I was only alerted to it when chatting to a local man. Its anonymity is a shame as, although personally I was definitely behind the door when artistic appreciation was handed out, I nevertheless found this extensive display of sculptures fascinating. Just a very few of the sculptures are shown in my photographs. There are many more.

This walk from Coverack could be included as a diversion during  the Coverack to Kennack Sands walk if you have time but you are likely to be here longer than you think because it is so interesting.

Parking is “on street” in Coverack but this is limited and the bulk of the parking spaces are on the northern approach to the village on the B3293, where there is an “honesty box”. There is also a pay and display car park and toilets next to it. There is also a small “honesty box” car park to the rear of the Paris hotel but chances of there being space are slim.

The walk is described from Coverack Harbour. To get to Coverack, follow the B3293 off the A3083 from Helston to Lizard.

Start: Walk up the steep road west from the harbour, passing a house on the left bearing a tablet in honour of Elizabeth Coad.

Continue along the road until you reach the school and immediately after it, turn left at the road junction passing the school play area.

Stay on the road to the thatched cottage (Chynhalls) and immediately after it is a large bungalow (Porthbeer). Take the public footpath along the left hand side of the bungalow.

Follow this obvious path, initially alongside the caravan park, until you reach a strip of what looks like a concrete path crossing the path you are on. The sculptures are in two fields, one to the left and one to the right.

Return is the same way, or alternatively, continue to the coast and turn left back to Coverack on the Coast Path.
