Low Tide At Sennen Cove

Sennen Cove is a small coastal settlement in the parish of Sennen in Cornwall, United Kingdom.
Sennen Cove is not a cove in the geological sense, and would be more properly described as a Bay. Sennen Cove, as distinct from Sennen Churchtown, is found at the end of a spur road which joins the A30 trunk road approximately one mile (1.61 km) from Land's End. The road descends gently for about 300 yards and then steeply for another 300 yards to the village which lies just above the beach at an altitude of 5 metres (16 ft) to 10 metres (33 ft). The beach extends further north along the coast towards the peninsula of Cape Cornwall a few miles further to the north. There are a few dozen houses built primarily of granite and some of concrete, arranged mainly in terraces, typical of many of the villages in Cornwall. Several submarine telecommunications cables are landed at Sennen Cove and are connected via landlines to the cable terminating equipment at Skewjack together with others from Porthcurno.
