West Pentire Arable Plant Project

I had a spare couple of hours this afternoon and decided to take a look at the Arable Plant Project near Crantock.  Its a special project managed by the National Trust and one of only two of its kind in the UK. The main purpose is to protect the numerous range of rare wild plants on the 16 hectare reserve.  The Poppies and Corn Marigolds are especially impressive in June and July, as can be seen in the images below.  If you are in the area, its a sight well worth taking in.
