SUPER SWEET HEADING
The powder-blue sky is full of screaming gulls and cawing crows. Amid the aerial melee, two circling buzzards are mewing loudly to one another. Many metres below them, we are traversing the West Penwith peninsula in Cornwall, through an ancient, largely unchanged landscape. Isolated farmsteads are set within an intricate patchwork quilt of irregularly shaped fields enclosed by earth hedge-banks faced with granite rocks which are havens for wildlife. Those around Zennor Head were constructed 4,600 years ago, and are among the oldest manmade artefacts known to be still in use for their original purpose. Undulating across the countryside, they tumble towards cliff edges and sweep up to tracts of moorland to merge with gnarly granite tors. In the Neolithic and Bronze Age, the hills hereabouts were crowned with megalithic monuments, and in the Iron Age some were repurposed as hill forts.
