 Cornwall Walks

National Trail footpath markerCornwall is a county of dramatic coastline and a seafaring history. It was also famous for tin mining and there used to be a saying that there was no mine in the world without a Cornish miner at the bottom of it. Sadly the tin mining has all but disappeared but a rich legacy of industrial monuments remain in the shape of old mine buildings on the north coast.

Cornwall has a distinct cultural identity and had its own language.

The South West Coast Path is a National Trail running for 630 miles from Minehead in Somerset to Poole Harbour in Dorset which takes in all the Cornwall coast. This provides a multitude of walking opportunities via circular routes, although some road walking, albeit on quiet lanes, is often necessary to complete the loop.

The National Trail acorn symbol (see photo) indicates the route of the Coast Path.

There are a series of Official South West Coast Path Guides.

The Cornish coast includes many attractive coves and quaint fishing villages.

Cornwall has long been a favourite holiday destination and tourists are well catered for.
