Britain’s most daring regions revealed as London and Cornwall top list of nude sunbathers – where does your town rank?
BRITAIN’S most daring regions have been revealed as London tops the list of nude sunbathers.

Summer temperatures are set to reach heights of 37C this week with more than a quarter of all Brits set to soak up the rays in the buff.

A poll of 2,000 found that that 31 per cent of us – that’s 620 in all – sunbathed naked regularly when the sun came out.

London topped the research with 42 per cent of people stripping off with Northern Ireland second with 39, then the Midlands 37, Cornwall 33 and Scotland with 31 per cent.

Those in Norfolk were the most restrained, with just 22 per cent confessing to sunbathing in the altogether.

Bosses at Hotels.com, who carried out the research, said naturist beaches were “fast becoming go-to travel hotspots” – with 20 per cent of those polled saying they loved going to them and stripping off completely.

Four Cornwall beaches named among the cleanest and safest in the UK
Blue Flags, Seaside Awards, and water quality ratings have all been taken into account

A list of the UK’s cleanest and safest beaches has been compiled by Ann’s Cottage surf shop.

Four Cornish beaches have been named among the top 11; Porthtowan, Porthmeor, Carbis Bay, and Widemouth Sand.

The research has taken several factors into account. Each of the featured locations has earned itself a water quality rating of ‘excellent’, a Blue Flag status, a Seaside Award, and has proven negligible traces of e. coli or enterococci in the past year.

The annual Blue Flag and Seaside Awards were announced last month. This year Cornwall has the second most Blue Flag and Seaside Awards in the UK, behind Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.

Six beaches in the county have received both Blue Flag and Seaside status; Gyllyngvase in Falmouth, Porthmeor in St Ives, Porthtowan, Widemouth Bay, Trevone Bay and Newquay’s Great Western.

Allison Ogden-Newton, chief executive of Keep Britain Tidy, the organisation responsible for the awards in the UK, said: “Visiting beaches with the Blue Flag or Seaside Award status means beach-goers can feel more relaxed in a setting that is environmentally considerate.”

New routes, new airlines and new tech for Cornwall Airport Newquay
The year ended on a high with passenger numbers up 20% year-on-year in November and 7.3% in December compared with 2017.

A busy 2018 at Cornwall Airport Newquay (CAN) saw a number of new routes announced, including the much anticipated link into an international hub, London Heathrow; StobartAir adding London Southend (under the Flybe franchise) to its portfolio of routes; and a new airline partner, Scandinavian flag carrier, SAS, introducing a new link to Copenhagen. There was also an increase in passenger numbers in the winter months with Ryanair extending its popular Alicante service to a year-round operation as well as technological advances in both the passenger check-in process and onsite car parks.

The year ended on a high with passenger numbers up 20% year-on-year in November and 7.3% in December compared with 2017. 450,000 passengers used the Airport with projections for overall passenger growth by the end of the financial year meaning a 5th consecutive year of growth.

Cornwall Airport, Newquay

Last year saw the Airport make some exciting announcements for both new and existing customers. New charter holiday provider Superbreak announced short breaks to Iceland (Q1 2019) which was enthusiastically received by customers. This continued with Ryanair’s extension of the Alicante summer route becoming year-round, offering a much demanded winter sun destination from Newquay.

Eurowings added to the Airport’s strong German portfolio with new routes, improving the connections for European tourists, an added bonus for many local businesses. This growth within the Eurowings offering gave Scandinavian airline SAS the confidence to announce a new Copenhagen route, bringing the opportunity for further inbound tourism into Cornwall from the Danish and wider Scandinavian market.

Managing Director Al Titterington comments: “We’ve had some fantastic new routes announced over the last year. The Copenhagen route has already proved popular with the Danish market, with flight dates being extended before the first flight has even landed!”

“With our German routes already bringing new visitors into Cornwall, it is hoped that we see this replicated with Scandinavian customers and will continue to grow the international passengers keen to see more of our beautiful county. With our new connection to London Heathrow starting in March this year, we hope that we will see far more tourists from further afield, such as the USA and Asia, who can now easily connect to Cornwall via Heathrow.” Continued…Read full original article…

Seven things people in Cornwall should stop moaning about right now
We live in Cornwall and things could be so much worse, yet still we moan

We’re a nation of moaners who complain more than 70 times a week – each.

In fact research has shown that we complain so much, that more than three quarters of us admit to having a moan about other people moaning or complaining.

A bit like I’m doing here, admittedly.

Dogs love to play on Cornish beaches

But sometimes, we need to take a long hard look at ourselves and loosen up a little. Get on with it – we live in Cornwall, and things could be so much worse.

In less fortunate parts of the world, the things we moan about are just a distant dream.

UNDERWATER WORLD Heatwave reveals ‘Lost Valley’ as reservoirs dries up exposing roads and buildings of community submerged 60 years ago
The people of Nanquitho were forced to leave to make way for the Drift Reservoir, completed in 1961

A LOST valley submerged underwater for decades has been uncovered by the summer heatwave.

Old stone walls, outlines of buildings, gate posts and even roads now stand in the open air once again on the dried-up bed of Drift Reservoir.

Roads, walls and gateposts have emerged from the depths at Drift Reservoir after the summer heatwave

The resurrected ruins were once home to a community that was forced to leave when construction on the reservoir began.

Margaret Pengelly still remembers living in the Lost Valley – the name given to the flooded area by locals who still remember the community was ever there.

Margaret moved to Trewidden Vean, a substantial farm, and the smallholding at Nanquitho near Penzance. Continued…Read full original article…

Southleigh Manor nudist holiday park near Newquay is up for sale
If you like your hols in the buff then this place is for you

The largest naturist holiday park in Cornwall is up for sale.

Southleigh Manor holiday park at St Columb Major, near Newquay, has been brought to the market.

The holiday business, where being in the buff is de rigueur, could be yours to own for a cool £1.1 million after owners Bob and Kathy Prescott decided to throw in the towel and enjoy a well-earned retirement.

The pair, who have been running the bare-all holiday park for 18 years, said they made up their mind to sell the site following the recent birth of their grandson, Harry.

Mr Prescott, now 69, said: “We’ve always liked Cornwall ever since coming down here on holidays. We came here to the park 19 years ago and the people who had it were struggling.

“After a conversation we ended up buying up the place. It turned out to be a very expensive holiday but we’ve done well out of it. But with my wife not being in the best of health and the birth of our grandson, we feel it’s time to enjoy our retirement and take it easy a bit more.”

Mr Prescott said that while there have been a few expressions of interest for the site already – which he could not divulge – he is not sure whether any new owners will want to keep the business au naturel as it currently is. Continued…Read full original article…

When: 31st July – 11th August 2018
Where: West Northwood Farm, St Neot, PL14 6QN
Cost: FREE!

Bodmin Moor
Bodmin Moor The Cornwall Guide

Bodmin Moor is now a sparsely populated wilderness, but it was once a hub of civilisation. The moors are peppered with the remains of Bronze Age life, from stone circles, to burial mounds.

But while some of the signs of a successful Bronze Age population are obvious, many of the most important clues can only be recovered through careful, archaeological excavation.

Where did people live? What did they eat? What was life really like for them? And most importantly, how do archaeologists find the answers?

A Bronze Age village has been recently discovered at West Northwood Farm, on the southern slopes of Bodmin Moor, near St Neot.

With distant views to the sea, the settlement contains at least 7 roundhouses. This year, DigVentures is leading an excavation along with St Neot Local Historians. Together, our aim is to recover traces of life from two of the round houses.

Never done archaeology before? Great! Tried it before and want to do it again? Brilliant!

Register to join the dig, and you’ll get to learn hands-on about archaeology, and help unearth the secrets of Bronze Age life, while taking part in a real excavation…

You can join the dig for a day, a weekend, the full two weeks, or any number of days in between

Everyone who takes part in the excavation will get to:

  • Dig alongside our friendly team of archaeologists
  • Learn hands-on how archaeological discoveries are made
  • Record any discoveries you make using our online app
  • Learn how to do archaeological drawings
  • Make a real contribution to our understanding of Bronze Age life in Cornwall!

Always wanted to try archaeology? This is your chance!

Beavers born in Cornwall for first time in 400 years
The first baby beavers to be born in Cornwall in 400 years have been caught on camera.

Now juvenile beavers, known as kits, have been spotted playing in the water on a farm near Truro.

Their parents arrived at Ladock last year, as part of a project to reintroduce the creatures.

The five-acre fenced site at Woodland Valley appears to be the perfect spot for these litter creatures!

They were filmed after farmer Chris Jones spotted them at the start of the week and alerted project partner Cornwall Wildlife Trust.

Popular beach in Cornwall has a very intriguing secret most tourists miss completely – and it’s only revealed at low tide
Crantock Beach in Cornwall has a secret that’s become the stuff of legends with locals, but it only becomes obvious at low tide

Crantock Beach in Cornwall has long been a hit with visitors for its sandy shores and swimming-friendly waters.

However, the far side of the beach is home to a host of small caves hidden amongst the rocks that you could easily miss if you didn’t know to look out for them – and they hold an intriguing secret.

CornwallLive / SWNS.com

The caves are only accessible during the low tide, but those who make the trip will discover a series of intricate carvings that have become the stuff of local legend.

Etched into the walls are carvings of the outline of a horse, the close-up of a woman’s face, and a pretty love poem that reads, “Mar not my face by let me be/Secure in this lone cavern by the sea/Let the wild waves around me roar/Kissing my lips for evermore”.

The truth is out there – and the 20th annual Cornwall UFO Convention could reveal all
The convention will include talks on the different theories that could explain UFOs

David Gillham is a man who has been searching for the truth about UFOs for more than 20 years after spotting something he couldn’t explain in the skies above his Truro home.

He was so intrigued by the unusual sight that he started to look into other sightings around the local area, made contact with Army and RAF bases and even started a weekly meet-up for like-minded people to share their experiences.

While the group stopped many years ago, Mr Gillham has been inviting “open-minded people” from across the county and farther afield to attend the annual convention hosted by the Cornwall UFO Research Group (Cuforg).
