Our Next Walks
Details of the walks we have planned for the near future appear here just about as soon as we know the details
Wednesday 5th June 2019
– Porth, St Columb Minor, Watergate Bay
A mixture of farmland & coastal walking.
Circular with excellent views, wild flowers & birds. Just under
5 miles. You will need to be reasonably fit for this one - two stiff
hills & about 7 stiles.
Wednesday 5 June. Meet from 10.00 am for
10.30am start. Returning at 3pm (very approx.)
Meet on the
right-hand side of the beach (as you face the sea) on the paved area opposite the entrance to Porth Beach
Holiday Park & Car Park, Alexandra Rd, TR7 3NH.
Sorry but the
car parks in Porth are not cheap so car share if you can & share the cost. When we looked, Porth Beach
Holiday Park car park was around £6 & the council carpark which is actually on the sand on the left-hand
side of the beach, was around £8. There is some on-road parking in the back
:Well-controlled dogs on
short leads only. There is livestock in fields & the farmer has had two recent casualties to sheep
worrying & is very vigilant.
Public toilets on the left-hand side of Porth
Beach & at our lunch stop – these are 20p.
: We will go
down to Watergate Bay for lunch (dogs allowed on the beach), two miles of golden sand at low tide. Bring a
picnic or you can buy burgers, pasties, sausage rolls, ice creams etc from the Venus snack bar. There are
also restaurants including Fifteen but time will be limited.
Just under 5
miles. There is a stiff climb up to St Columb Major and another just after we leave that village. There is a
lesser climb back up from Watergate Bay but after that, the terrain is much more forgiving. A main road to
cross. Seven stiles – two or three of which can be avoided, a bank to scramble up and trip hazards where
badgers have undermined the footpath.
etc: Walking boots &
something to cut the wind on the headland. Wear long trousers; there are nettles & ticks may be about.
