Church Cove is a beautiful cove with a 15th century church nestled in the cliffs. It is rather apt this cove was the location for the evening shipwreck scenes in series one of Poldark, as written above the church door are the words, The church of the storms’.
A stone’s throw north from Church Cove lies Dollar Cove. Legend has it that in the 17th century a ship carrying silver dollars was wrecked nearby and that occasionally silver coins are washed up on the shore.
1 km North is Gunwalloe Fishing Cove, the scene of the party after Ross is acquitted in series two. On the cliffs behind this cove stands the building used as the location for Dr Enys’s home.
