‘The Far West’ – Calstock Footpath Society Walk

Title: ‘The Far West’ – Calstock Footpath Society Walk
Location: Meet: Luckett village car park (SX389736)
Description: Join Caroline & Peter Hammond for a 6.5-mile walk. There is a fairly steep incline at the beginning of the walk; if you would prefer not to do this bit it is possible to be dropped off at a point up the hill from the start just above the old Luckett Miners’ Cottages where there will be someone waiting to meet you.
The walk will take you on the relatively new link path towards New Mills, through Wheal Sheba and Martha woods towards Higherland and from Mearfield towards Lidwell and then via Poundfield to Pempwell. Across fields towards Hampton Manor and Horsebridge and looping back to Luckett. There are a few steep climbs and several stiles, some of which are quite high. There is a little bit of ‘quiet lane walking’ too.
There is an option to enjoy a cream tea following the walk but you will need to book this at least a week before the walk by contacting Peter and Caroline on 01579 370474 or email updowncott@btinternet.com. Sorry not suitable for dogs as we could pass through several fields of animals. Bring packed lunch and wear suitable footwear. Each non-member will be asked for a donation of £2.
For more information contact Peter and Caroline as above.
