As I Was Going To St Ives

Event Details

Covid-19 - getting back outdoors

All of our groups are now able to offer events. In England and Wales, up to 30 people (including the organiser) may attend each event. In Scotland a maximum of 15 people, from a maximum of 5 households may attend.
Groups may choose to implement a booking system for their events, or revert to the standard "attendance" system. Everyone attending an event will be required to provide their name and contact details to the event contact for Track and Trace purposes.

Local restrictions may affect any events at short notice, please be aware that some last minute cancellations may be neccessary. Registering your attendance on an event, and ensuring that your profile is set to allow general messages from GOC, will ensure you can be informed of any last minute changes.

General information

  1. This is a GOC walk with a difference and is about the cultural elements covered rather than the distance of the walk.

From the starting point (see details below) the walk heads firstly to the Knill Monument where a quirky story can be told of a former Mayor of St Ives. Its then on to the Leach Pottery tour for a guided tour from our walk leader himself!  In addition to this there will be free entry.


The walk then continues to the heart of St Ives to view the Hepworth Sculptures and purchase an ice cream.  The return back to the starting point will be via a circular route.

Terrain / Difficulty

Fairly Flat walk on good paths.

Approximate Distance

5 miles
