More rescues have been needed at Crantock Beach every year since storms damaged a wall in 2014. Without the retaining wall, the River Gannel has free to weave across the beach, changing tidal patterns and creating rip currents. Dunes at the top of the beach are also receding as the river erodes their base. The RNLI said there were 20 rescues at Crantock beach in 2013, and that the number has steadily increased to 70 in 2018. They told a public meeting of the Gannel beach study steering group that the popular beach had become “unpredictable and dynamic”.

The beach is owned by the Duchy of Cornwall and the National Trust, and a report commissioned by the Duchy said that replacing the retaining wall could cost as much as £2.4m, and that it could require significant money to maintain it. The steering group wanted to implement a beach safety plan to improve education of people using the beach, and said that increased lifeguard presence could be part of the solution. A member of the steering group, Dr Ben Dobson from Crantock Parish Council, said: “This summer we have had thousands of people on the beach and there have been no serious accidents and there is every reason to come to our beautiful beach.”

Tunnels that were used to transport china clay to the harbour at Charlestown have been opened after more than 50 years. The tunnels under the Shipwreck Museum feature the original rail system, as well as the gurneys used to shift clay on to the waiting ships.

The graves of 15 men have been restored as part of the centenary commemorations of a mining disaster. On 20 October 1919, the wooden transportation system called a “Man Engine” collapsed, killing 31 men in the Levant tin and copper mine. The accident was the beginning of the end of the mine, which closed in 1933. One unnamed miner, who was 15 when he worked there, told the BBC in 1961: “I saw a sight which I don’t want to see again. It took three days to recover the men who had been trapped in the shaft and one man who was wounded and brought out alive.”

Cornish Pirates’ Coach Gavin Cattle praised his side’s winning mentality after they won 44-25 at Doncaster last weekend. Cattle told BBC Cornwall, “You’ve got to learn to win games when it’s not quite going your way as well.”
