Stone handaxe
THIS small handaxe is one of the most beautiful in the British Museum. It is made from quartz with attractive amethyst banding, a difficult material from which to make tools because it is extremely hard. The toolmaker would have had to hit with considerable force and accuracy to remove flakes. Such a high degree of difficulty makes the thin, symmetrical shape of this piece a masterpiece of the toolmakers’ art.

Bay View Farm Caravan and Camping Site, St Martins, Looe, Cornwall

Bay View Farm Caravan and Camping Site, St Martins, Looe, CornwallWhen someone puts love into a campsite, it shows; and Bay View Farm is one loved spot. Welcoming owners Mike and Liz have been smitten with the place since 1972 and, after finally buying the firm and opening it to campers in 1999, they've put a whole lot of love into maintaining it.

The beautifully kept site comprises a modest 25 spaces on a sloping field. Pitch your tent the right way up and the slope only enhances your view, which is about as panoramic and impressive as it gets on the Cornish south coast - stretching to West Looe on the far side of Hanner Fore - a real sight for just-woken eyes. During the summer season, an overflow field ensures there's still plenty of space. But whichever field you pitch on, both are wide open spaces guaranteeing a sea view.

If you like your vistas with a challenge then have a crack at the South West Coast Path - within easy reach of the campsite's cosy confines. On your way back, you can pop into quaint fishing village, Polperro, and take your pick from treats at a host of fudge shops, tea rooms, and fishmongers' with fresh catches - perfect for the evening BBQ.
