Cornish Fences

I don't often photograph a fence just because it's there but on a trip to Cornwall last month there were some I could not resist and others just happened to be there.

Headland fence
The building on the horizon to the right of the fence is the Headland Hotel at Newquay just up from the famous Fistral surfing beach. The fence is there to stop people falling over the cliffs into the sea (Atlantic).

There is more where the Headland ends.

Atlantic from the Headland
We went for Sunday lunch at a hotel further up the north coast of Cornwall.

Crantock beach
The rope fence to the car park was all there was to prevent a fall down onto the beach.

On a walk between St Mawgan and Mawgan Porth the shots I took had fences in then too, but these weren't really meant to all that important as - 

The white horse
and 

The turkey wanting to be fed
This is a post for Good Fences of course.

Enjoyed the variety of fences. Nice area. The white horse is different from any I have seen.

What do they say, Good Fences make Good Neighbours. I was surprised when we first came here at the open plan front lawns (yards) where in the UK we would probably have had fences. Like your shots, such a long time since I was last in Cornwall.

Your fences were great. Loved the rust and of course the animals behind the fences.
