Season: spring

St Anthony-in-Meneage sits peacefully on the northern edge of Gillan Creek, itself on the southern side of the Helford River.  The tide was in for this visit and people were preparing their boats for another sailing season.  The setting is idyllic, with the church of St Anthony and small cottages behind the hard standing.  This creek offers some of the best access to the sea on this side of the Helford estuary and is popular with yachting enthusiasts and kayakers alike.  The village feels timeless and peaceful, although a Celtic fortress once stood nearby on the headland.  The South West Coast Path traverses Gillan Creek here and the area is part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest (see button above).
