Description:

Gwennap Head considered being the very best place in Cornwall to see many marine species including dolphins, porpoises, Basking Shark, Grey Seals, seabirds and even an occasional whale.

There are a pair of cone-shaped navigation markers on Gwennap Head, in line with the Runnel Stone buoy. These are day markers warning vessels of the hazard of the Runnel Stone. The cone to the seaward side is painted red, and the inland one is black and white. When at sea the black and white one should always be kept in sight to avoid the submerged rocks nearer the shore. If the red cone entirely obscures the black and white cone then the vessel would be directly on top of the Runnel Stone. The landmark was erected by the Corporation of Trinity House in 1821 – an event recorded on a plaque on the back of the black and white marker.
