worth taking a few minutes to meander through the overgrown cemetery and soak up some long forgotten names

a lot of history written on the grave stones especially in the older part of this cemetery. Giving details of how the person died and the circumstances.

Full of history and opportunities to make up matching stories to existing headstones - a wonderful way to pass an hour or so. There are also two stone chapels on the grounds.

Really, the cemetery is directly above a beautiful beach. Our B&B overlooked the cemetery and beach and it was very picturesque. If you're into that sort of thing, walking among the very old gravestones is sort of peaceful.

Great view on the atlantic! For a cemetery this is just spectacular. Layout is very nice - silent place to remain for a little while. Minus: next to a big parking space

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.

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
