Town Walks in Cornwall presents 15 circular walks exploring some of the county s most picturesque and interesting towns, both coastal and inland. You will discover hidden backwaters and well-kept secrets as well as finding the better-known landmarks. The detailed walk directions are interspersed with separate notes on the history and buildings en route. Information on places to eat and stay, market days and details of nearby attractions are also included. Illustrated throughout, this book provides a wonderful glimpse into Cornish towns. It will be enjoyed by those wanting short walks, away from mud and with tea-shop-stops en route. It will appeal to visitors and residents alike.
Rezension: Lots to see apart from the sea You don t have to walk up clifftop paths above the rolling Atlantic to discover some of the most fascinating parts of Cornwall its towns, too, have an attractive identity. Starting with St Ives and ending with Helston, Town Walks in Cornwall visits 15 towns and plots routes ranging from 1 mile to just over 3 miles. At that length and with such diverse architecture en route, these are strolls that will exercise the mind. The appealing Truro features with a 1.6 mile walk that takes in the proud Coinage Hall with what must be one of Cornwall s quaintest tea rooms above it, to the cathedral grounds and a pleasant walk by the river. The route also includes the Victoria Gardens with a useful tip by the authors that every Sunday afternoon during the summer brass bands play at the elegant bandstand there. Fowey, one of Cornwall s loveliest towns, also features. As tourists throng its winding streets at the height of summer, there is a delightful, peaceful part of Fowey that exists thanks to the old grammar school, The Quiet Garden , where all the plants are donated by local people. Big Society practice came to Fowey long before David Cameron had the idea. Lostwithiel is for many a hurry-through on the main road, but those who pass through without exploring are missing a historic treat. It has a mainly medieval bridge, some lovely townhouses and a Georgian Guildhall. Launceston features with a 1 mile walk in what is one of Cornwall s most attractive inland towns, including Castle Street, described by the former poet laureate, John Betjeman, as having the most perfect collection of 18th century townhouses in Cornwall. Launceston is the true capital of Cornwall. Truro? It s just a Johnny-come-lately. --Colin Brent, now of the Cornish and Devon Post
