A local couple were left stunned after capturing what looked like a face on the cliffs of a Cornish beauty spot. Louise Coe was walking along the coast path at Bedruthan Steps with her husband on Sunday morning (April 10) when the pair spotted the unique feature embedded on the rock face, Cornwall Live reports.
The couple are regular walkers of the route, although they have not been to the National Trust site for more than a year due to recent landslides, with Bedruthan Steps closed on several occasions as a result. However as they embarked on their coast walk, Mrs Coe noticed what appeared to be a human face gazing from the cliffs.
The distinguishable feature appears to have been formed by one of the landslides in a remarkable natural occurrence.
Louise said: “We’ve gone there so many times before but never noticed. It’s quite different, looks like a recent landslide formed it – but it looks man-made. Obviously it can’t be, though, we haven’t heard anything because of where it is. We’ve lived here for many years and are National Trust members so go there quite often.”
Bedruthan Steps, located between Padstow and Newquay in Cornwall, started to become treacherous in December 2019 when a huge rockfall destabilised the cliff face, with another large landslide occurred on the afternoon of New Year’s Day in 2021. Cordons remain in places in the area to warn visitors of the dangers of some parts of the coastal path.
