“Giant Bolster must have been of enormous size: since it is stated that he could stand with one foot on St. Agnes’ Beacon and the other on Cairn Brea; these hills being distant, as the bird flies, six miles. In proof of this, there still exists, in the valley running upwards from Chapel Porth, a stone in which may still be seen the impression of the giant’s fingers. We hear but little of the wives of giants; but Bolster had a wife, who was made to labour hard by her tyrannical husband. Whenever Bolster was angry with his wife, he compelled her to pick stones, and to carry them in her apron to the top of the hill…..”
A beautiful play enacted by the locals on the hillside at Chapel Porth Cove in St Agnes. Family entertainment overlooking the atlantic ocean. Music, good food and the famous ‘Hedgehog’ ice creams from the cafe. Bring a blanket to sit on, the gorse and heather’s a bit prickly!
After visiting Giant Bolster, why not head back to to your lodge with a Pizza from The Cornish Pizza Company, then relax in hot tub intil the sun goes down.
