Cornwall : Roughtor – Brown Willy – Bodmin Moor AONB-Images

Cornwall’s iconic twin peaks Roughtor and Bron Wennyly (‘Hill of Swallows’ generally known as ‘Brown Willy’) and the Bodmin Moor Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty constitute the only completely inland moorland highland part of the Cornwall AONB which is of UK National Importance. The Bodmin Moor AONB is the closest thing Cornwall has to wilderness and offers wide open spaces for adventure, solace, inspiration, contemplation and the opportunity to take time out from the hurly burly and complexity of modern life. People from far and wide make personal, private or social pilgrimages to the moor and its peaks throughout the year, day and night. From the summits of Roughtor and Brown Willy spectacular 360° vistas across Cornwall can be enjoyed by all. If we can’t protect such a special place from such gross wind turbine skyline clutter and horizon foreshortening as threatened by ‘Community’ Windpower Ltd Cheshire, NOWHERE would be safe or sacrosanct.
Here are some images taken in and around the Bodmin Moor AONB in recent times. Enjoy…
