Open Sundays Gribbin Daymark Open Days
Visible from land and sea, Gribbin Head is Fowey's sentinel. It is a striking landmark due to its red and white daymark tower. The daymark has sat upon the Gribbin since 1832, providing a navigational aid to mariners. Walk out to the Gribbin Headland, take a picnic or stop off at Polridmouth Beach perhaps. National Trust volunteers will have the Daymark open so you can climb up the steps to the top. The fantastic views from the top are ample reward for the climb! Open Sundays from 7 July to 15 September (11am - 5pm) £1 adults; NT members and children free.
