Walking in Cornwall
By Graham Uney
This guidebook includes routes to 40 day walks in Cornwall. From short, easy strolls to longer, wilder routes, there is plenty to appeal to both families and experienced walkers. The walks explore the interior and coasts, including walks through picturesque villages, old tin-mining areas and the Lizard and Land's End Peninsulas.
SeasonsThere really isn't an off-season in Cornwall. The coastal walks are great at any time of year, as are the archaeological sites. Only Bodmin Moor is best left for the summer months.
CentresGood bases are St Just, St Ives, Porthleven, St Agnes, St Austell, Padstow, Boscastle and Bude.
DifficultyMost of the routes in this book are short easy walks following obvious paths and tracks, although a handful are more challenging. Walking boots and waterproofs are necessary, especially on exposed cliff-top walks, and for all the routes on Bodmin Moor.
Must SeeExplore the amazing cliff-top paths of the Cornish coast. Discover signs of ancient man at scores of archaeological sites. Uncover the history of the Cornish tin mines. Stride out across the wildest parts of Bodmin Moor.
