'The ancient township of Grampound, together with the hamlet of Creed, lies in the centre of Cornwall, sheltered in the beautiful valley of the River Fal. Settled since prehistoric times, from within the ancient parish of Creed and the old manor of Tybesta, Grampound grew as a main crossing place of the Fal, a focus for travellers and traders moving betwen west Cornwall and England. Thus Grampound became one of the most important towns in Cornwall and has a rich and vibrant history.'

The objects of the WCFPS are to preserve public footpaths and bridleways, which is done mainly by ensuring they are walked regularly.
