'Calstock Parish stretches from Gunnislake in the east to the bounds of Kit Hill. There are 40 Public Rights of Way identified by standards set by Cornwall Council who classify county paths as Gold, Silver and Bronze. It is significant that all parish paths are Gold with only one classified as Silver. Many of the paths are rich in industrial heritage, provide magnificent views of countryside and the Tamar with links to woodland and quiet lanes and roads.'
'This is a "Walkers Are Welcome" Town ... All the Walk Booklets are available in town but you can print a copy from the online PDF ... Walks are also available on the Camelfordian Website.'
'Liskeard is an excellent base for walkers being situated midway between the coast and the moors. It is an ancient market town on the main London to Penzance railway line and has good bus services, both local and national. It has a wide range of shops, mostly locally owned, and still has a livestock market.'
'There is a marked trail around the island that takes in the site of a Benedictine chapel built in 1139 at the highest point (47 m). Legend says that Joseph of Arimathea came here ... Please note that visits can only be made on official organised trips.'
'Putting the "East" back into the walking festival ... This year's festival will see the emphasis on walks in the eastern part of South East Cornwall. It also goes to show that there are walks going on around the area all year round organized by volunteers groups such as the Ramblers.' Latest Dates 10-16 September 2016.
'The parish of St. Neot is the second largest parish in Cornwall and is an area of contrasts. To the north lies Bodmin Moor whilst in the south lies farmland deeply dissected by the rivers that flow south off the moor. The boundary of the parish is the River Bedalder flowing off Hard Head Moor. The eastern and southern parish boundaries are formed by the Fowey River flowing off moorland, cascading over Golitha Falls to meet with the St. Neot River. The St. Neot river was anciently known as the Loysan and later the Loveny.'
'Contains 27 round walks on and around the Moor, all researched between 2010 and 2012. Mostly between 5 and 10 miles in length, they contain Description, Diary, Interest, Statistics, Useful Info and a PDF file of Route Directions, with a few grid references to help locate significant features. Walks are grouped under area. In some cases, two walks can be joined to make one long one.'
'Get your boots on! Bodmin is a great centre for walking holidays with the Camel Trail starting in the town, the rugged landscape of Bodmin Moor right on its doorstep, the Saints Way crossing nearby and Cardinham Woods, the Forestry Commission woodland just ten minutes drive from the town centre ...'
Bodmin Moor [Oliver's Cornwall]
'The Copper Trail was devised and researched by Mark Camp. The full trail guide is available from good local bookshops ... Mark Camp is known as an authority on Bodmin Moor. In 2005, he excelled himself with a continuous 60 mile trail around the moor, which he calls the Copper Trail, appropriately since Minions and Caradon Hill were once the centre of a great copper mining boom.'
'Cotehele a fine example of a Tudor house 1485 and 1627 set amidst deciduous woodlands of the Danescombe and Morden valleys, over looking the ebb and flow of the River Tamar. Valley sides dotted with hidden mine shafts, lime kilns redundant fields of daffodils.'
'Maps to download for short walks in Fowey and Polruan. These include walks for those with pushchairs or wheelchairs and walks for those who have a bit more time to explore ... Audio Trails add background information and can be followed in short or longer stretches.'
'This Trail covers much of that part of Launceston which was the core of the Mediaeval town built within the Town Wall, now designated as a Conservation Area of Outstanding Status. It contains examples of every significant type of architecture since the Norman Conquest.'
'There are a number of walks in and around Lostwithiel to suit all ages and abilities. You can visit historic buildings, walk along ancient routes or simply enjoy the unspoilt countryside.'
'Enjoy wild flowers, wooded countryside and fine views on this route which takes you along a flat, former railway line to the beach and harbour at Pentewan.'
'Our Things to do without the car section gives lots of information about how to enjoy St Austell Bay without the car. Downloadable PDFs are available for Walks around St Austell Bay. The Cycle trails, Clay Trails, Tree Trails, Nature Trails and the South West Coastal path all provide off road opportunities for walking, cycling and horse riding.'
Sponsored by Cornwall Council
'25km of new and improved trails which have been created as part of the Tamar Valley Mining Heritage Project. They open up parts of the Tamar Valley that were previously not accessible to the public.'
'Circuit around the heart of Helman Tor Nature Reserve. The route takes you through eerie willow woodlands, over ancient landscapes and wildlife-rich heathland, past ponds buzzing with nature and into the footsteps of Cornwall's mining pioneers.' Unfortunately the PDF seems no longer to be downloadable, so I have replaced the Link with a more generic one from Visit Cornwall.
