Brown Willy from Roughtor

Brown Willy from Roughtor

A view of the highest point in Cornwall from the second highest point in Cornwall. This is the view to Brown Willy (ho ho!) from Roughtor on the northern fringes of Bodmin Moor.

It is certain the name is derived from an older Cornish name although there is no firm agreement on what. A likely candidate is Bronn Wennili, meaning Hill of the Swallows. The summit is 1,378 feet (420 m) above sea level.
