Unspoilt and peaceful - search awhile and find the grave of Alfred Wallis. The Barnoon is a well kept secret - a magical, peaceful and completely unspoilt little place above the sea.

Visited Barnoon Cemetry as part of Shanty Baba's Ghost Walk, which I highly recommend. Great views from the top of the beaches.

Really interesting place to visit, came here on the Shanty Baba ghost walk which I highly recommend, lots of history to the graveyard so well worth a look, also fantastic views of Porthmeor Beach, peaceful and pleasant.

A good walk across St Ives is the Barnoon Cemetary. I happen to like cemeteries they are peaceful places and this one is no exception with grave stones looking out to sea from the hill side to the sound of the waves rushing to the shore on Porthmeor beach. Amongst the the graves stones dating back some 100 years plus... More

Lovely place if you like an amazing view with your grave trawling. Porthmeor beach provides the gorgeous backdrop to this last resting place.

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.

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.
