Of course Paul’s deep knowledge of the region, its flora and its beauties – and not to forget his patience and his humor – have made me feel like it all was too short.  As a result, my eyes and my brain are full of new images and new knowledge.

Walking blog: The philosophy of walking

FRAWF walk


Cornwall is blessed with so many wonderful habitats and scenery that it is often a great idea to promote a single area for a festival. The problem only starts when one has to define the boundaries to include and exclude some areas from others. The Fal River estuary has up to 160kms (100m) of shoreline if one includes the Helford rivers' 42 kms and the south west coast path up to Portloe.

The Fal River Autumn Walking Festival spopnsored by the Nare Hotel has just had its inaugural set of walks. A variety of guides and walks were provided from wild food walks with Rachel Lambert to National Trust walks lead by Neil Stevenson amongst others. We have had nordic walking, walks on the maritime heritage of Falmouth and many downloadable self guided walks.

Set up by King Harry Ferry, NT, RNLI, walkitcornwall and the South West Coast Path team and organised by Eventy and Mpad we have had an enormous amount of sponsors and advertisers willing to put their names to walks and the programme all in the knowledge that this defined area is a wonderful place to walk in the autumn. The rest of the year ain't bad too...

These photos were taken on the Helford River and on the coast path from Helford Passage, Durgan, Rosemullion Head through Maenporth and Swanpool beaches to Gyllyngvase. The photo above is a CD cover if ever I saw one.
