Wheal Coates – St Agnes

Wheal Coates

Iconic Wheal Coates, set just above Chapel Porth beach, is very beautiful, although a rugged landscape, surrounded by gorse and heathland.

Wheal Coates is another one of my favourite places to paint, so some of these paintings/sketches have been painted on locations, others have been painted in my studio.

Being on the north coast it experiences the most stunning sunsets, and the ideal place to visit on a hot sunny day, if you walk via the car parks on the headland near to St Agnes Beacon. The perfect place to get away from the crowds. Chapel Porth does have a car park but it is very small and fills up quickly in the summer. On very very low tide, you can walk from Porthtowan.
