Trebetherick — Cornwall, England

Trebetherick is a village on the Northwestern bank of the River Camel in Cornwall.

TrebetherickThe village extends from Trebetherick Point, a rocky, windswept cliff outcrop, south towards the town of Rock. Trebetherick's large, sandy beach, Daymer Bay is sheltered from the Atlantic usually offering calm swimming in summer. South of Daymer Bay is Brea Hill, known for its ancient tumuli the ancient gravesites consisting of a large mound of earth over the remains of the dead. The National Trust owns part of the Point where fossilized submerged forests exist. Trebetherick also has a rocky coastline that still harbors the remains of shipwrecks caught on the jagged rocks.

St Enodoc Church is curiously located below ground level, behind Daymer Bay, having been excavated in 1863 after being completely buried in sand. The church graveyard is noted as being the resting place of Poet Laureate John Betjeman who died in his Trebetherick home. Strangely, the Church is set in the middle of the golf course which rises above the dunes.
