A Note from the Artist

A 109 step climb will take you to the top of the Gribbin Headland Daymark and amazing views across the headland. At 26m tall and banded in red and white stripes it has stood out on this site since 1832.

Erected by Trinity House ‘for the safety of commerce and the preservation of mariners’ the tower pinpoints the approach to Fowey’s narrow and rocky harbour entrance. This meant that sailors did not mistake the treacherous shallows of St Austell Bay for the deep waters of Falmouth harbour.

In 1967 the National Trust were able to acquire the land around the Gribbin headland and in 1998 the daymark itself was acquired from Trinity House for a nominal sum.

The tower is open to the public every Sunday from June to September.
