Happy Birthday South West Coast Path
The South West Coast Path is celebrating its 40th Birthday this year and during April a series of walks is being organised by the Coast Path Team, National Trust and others involved in keeping the path running. These are to celebrate the path and raise money to deal with improvements and some of the many landslips that have occured particularly this winter.
Encounter Walking Holidays based in Lerryn are raising money for a project at Lansallos Cove (our local section of path) to improve access for local walkers from the Car Parks and repair some of the ancient stone stiles there that are falling down.
CLICK HERE to read more about the Project and see pictures of the work to be done at Lansallos - we have already raised over £600 and this is being matched with European Funding so over £1200 worth of work is now going ahead - this is being organised by The National Trust Coast Path Ranger Andy Simmonds.
Join The Lerryn Village Walk - Polperro to Polruan - Thursday 25th April - 7 miles
We are inviting everyone to join the official Great South West Walk celebration walk from Polperro to Polruan on Thursday 25th April. This is a guided walk led by the Coast Path Team who are then continuing on to Lands End day by day for a big party early in May. Its a national event so will have walkers from all over the country but as we all know, Polperro to Polruan is one of the finest sections - please join the walk with us !
Details follow on the poster below but we are running the Lerryn Minibus from the village on the day to Polperro where anyone from the Lerryn area will link up with the official walk. You will then be collected after 7 stuning miles taking in Raphael Cliffs, Lansallos (see the Project locations on the way), Pencarrow Head and above Lantic Bay to finish in Polruan.
Encounter Walking Holidays are paying for a pint for anyone who completes the walk and will provide the LAMA minibus transport back to Lerryn at the end of the walk.
So please come along, bring your dog if you wish and be part of the largest group walk along our local section of coastline - without having to bring your car !
£10 per person Donataion ALL of which goes to the Coast Path Project at Lansallos improving the access and protecting the walking there for years to come.
