Towering above Lelant Downs in West Penwith , Trencrom hill is located close to Hayle and Carbis Bay.
From the top you have a 360 degree view of the surrounding countryside and both St Ives Bay looking north to Padstow and Mount’s Bay with St Michael’s Mount.
Standing 550 feet high, Trencrom is an ancient hill fort and a perfect spot to sit and watch the sun rise or set. And in spring and autumn you may feel its mystical powers, if you are receptive.
The hill was recorded as Torcrobm in 1758 which is derived from Cornish “torr crobm“, i.e. ‘hunched bulge‘.
