Watch Croft is a prominent hill, 826 feet high on the Penwith peninsula in the very west of Cornwall, overlooking the north coast of the county less than a mile from the hill. It is the highest point of Penwith, in a part known as the White Downs.
(The relative prominence of the hill, 738 feet, qualifies it to be listed as a 'Marilyn'; one of only five in Cornwall.)
Watch Croft is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the St Just Mining District of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site., 4 miles west of Penzance and 5 miles northeast of St Just.
