lifeboat is stationed on the east side of Trevose Head. The lighthouse was first lit on 1 December 1847; initially there was an upper and lower light with the lower light no longer used after 1882. The last of the resident keepers left the lighthouse on 20 December 1995 following automation.[1] A lifeboat was established at Padstow

before 1825 and in 1967 the lifeboat station was moved from Hawkers Cove
Hawkers Cove
to Trevose Head due to silting of the River Camel. The present station was completed in July 2006 and came into service shortly after.[2] Approximately 217 acres (88 ha) of Trevose Headland was put up for sale in March 2016, comprising 137 acres (55 ha) of agricultural land and 80 acres (32 ha) of coastal rough grazing and slope. The area had been in the ownership of the same family since circa 1900.[3] Natural history[edit] The headland is within the Trevose Head
