Britains Most Southerly Point.

Cornwall walkers this month headed for Britains Most southerly point: The Lizard. Regular walkers Neville, Chris, Terry, Paul and Matthew welcomed newcomers Karen and John.

We then continued round past the Lizard Lighthouse, The old Marconi Wireless Station and the National Coastwatch Institute before heading back for a light refreshment in the Lizards well known Top House Hotel....

July's Rough Tor

18 Jul 2018 | Cornwall Group

Our Rough Tor walk (pronounced row as in an argument) made a fabulous day out for the group this July. Lead by Simon and Steve in a very scenic East Cornwall location the walk was attended by myself, Shaun, Martin (x2!) Neville and Chris.

We trecked through a Wartime Airfield Site spotting various interesting objects along the way. There was also a view of Brown Willy (the highest point of Bodmin Moor) only a very short distance away from us. We went through various other fields, together with areas of open ...
