Perhaps the place should be renamed 'Praa Cobbles' instead.

Poldhu beach has suffered to a degree, although it has not helped having the continual extraction of sand by farmers over the years, by the tractor load.

Its all good, the sand will be back. Just need to wait for the typical tidal processes to resume.

How much sand do they take Gill? Are they allowed to do that?

They do not seem to have taken any in recent times as the amount of farms appear to be declining with some diversifying to things like holiday accommodation. They did however take sand for years, under the ancient 'right' from long ago when they used to take it by horse and cart to put on their farms.

It was claimed that the sand would naturally become replaced by the sea but I dispute that, because I and many others have seen the decline over many years of the thick sand that Poldhu used to have.

Can you prove it? I doubt it, anyone could take the same picture. If it is your picture and you don't like it on here then why didn't you contact the packet direct instead of just advertising on here to everyone that it is yours!!! and if it is yours hopefully the packet won't bother using any of your photos again. Talk about ungrateful!
