Cornwall Coast Path walk

There was a good turn out for this entertaining and informative talk on the Cornwall Coast Path by Rob & Denise.  The whole path is over 600 miles, Rob & Denise did the 203 miles from Bude to Falmouth.  They spent 17 nights under canvas and 7 nights in B&B.




The start at Bude, 203 miles to go!

Below you can see one of the many steep climbs on the walk - this one from Crackington Haven, on the way to Boscastle - 18 miles this leg.

The next day was also a long one - via Tintagel to Polzeath, 19 miles.  A welcome rest after quite a tiring day.

Below is Wheal Coates, one of the many disused Mine buildings.
