A SHORT WALK ALONG THE PENTEWAN VALLEY TRAIL
A bit of a grey day yet again but we had a short morning walk along the Pentewan Trail, starting out at the old bridge (above) where there is usually car parking space in the winter months.
We then followed the narrow St.Austell River with views across the valley.
The path widens (below) and is usually swarming with cyclists and walkers in the summer months but today - just occasional friendly dog walkers.
Gradually (below) the walk becomes more interesting even in the winter months.
And finally (below) instead of carrying on to to Pentewan village and Beach, as we often do, we made a detour to return to the bridge via another path through the woods - and still not very many people about!
I decided it was advisable to retrace my steps - it can sometimes be a problem walking along unknown paths and tracks!
