Great place for deep contemplation. This is where I came to the realization that James Bond is a code name instead of an actual person, which explains why there are numerous Bonds throughout the last 20 years. Turns out this is already an existing theory and I was too late to the party. With that said, Barnoon Cemetery is a... More

This is a wonderful place. It's worth spending time reading the gravestones, the tributes to loved ones are fascinating. I'm not flagging any in particular as it is best to discover them for yourself and the place is packed with aspects of local lives, rewarding to discover.

A picture of this cemetery was in our guide book, and we drove to St. Ives just to see it. Although it is not as old as its appearance would lead one to believe, it is a beautiful, peaceful place and it is puts one into a contemplative mood. Very unique.

Had a wander around this lovely cemetery on a breezy October morning. Bracing but beautiful views across the sea. Well worth a visit and great photo opportunities.

After a day walking the crowded streets of St Ives this is a wonderful place to contemplate life, death and the Universe.

Barnoon cemetery is located on the exposed side of a very steep hill overlooking Porthmeor beach. It is a well maintained fascinating place but can be difficult to walk around as the ground can be quite uneven with a lot of thick grass. Unless you are visiting graves, I would stick to the paths. There are a few benches to... More

Barnoon Cemetery has a lovely setting over Porthmeor Beach and makes for a lovely wander and reminder that St.Ives is home to "real" people, not just visitors. Reading the headstones in this well-tended graveyard is reading the history of St.Ives and is especially poignant after a visit to the St.Ives Museum. The paths and steps are very steep and some...

Large cemetary on the side of the hill with plenty of chance to look out to sea or walk round and gain a sense of some of the history of st Ives

btw - it's Barnoon cemetery. Alfred Wallis was a fisherman who took up painting in his 70s. His grave is covered with tiles made by Bernard Leach, decorated with a beautiful image of a lighthouse.
