Following the recent designation of Kit Hill as a Local Nature Reserve, there’s a great opportunity to find out more about this special site later this month on a guided walk of the Hill.
Join the Kit Hill Ranger and local historians on Sunday 24th August to explore some of the habitats and historical features on Kit Hill, the highest point in the Tamar Valley AONB. The route will pass by areas where volunteers have helped to look after the Hill, and you will have the chance to register your interest to join volunteer days that are being planned throughout autumn and winter.
Discover more about the rich archaeology of Kit Hill, with its prehistoric field systems and barrows. This leisurely walk will be over rough ground, so please wear stout walking boots and dress for the weather. Occasional stops have been planned to discuss features of interest, and to take in the spectacular views!
This event, organised by Helping Hands for Heritage, Cormac Solutions and Cornwall Council, will start at 10:00am, meeting in the adit car park. Explore the northern side of the Hill in the morning, stopping for a picnic lunch at the summit at 12:30pm. Walkers are welcome to leave then (or join), continuing at 1:00pm to walk around the southern side until approx 3:00pm.
Booking is essential – please contact the Tamar Valley AONB team; email@example.com or 01822 835030.
