Walking Along The Pentewan Trail, Cornwall


We had a walk, or maybe it was more of a stroll, along the Pentewan Valley Trail.


It was a little damp under foot but all was very pleasant. We walked alongside the small river heading towards Pentewan harbour and village.


Part of the walk is a path through a wood, very attractive with the fallen leaves underfoot.


It had been raining a heck of a lot, so much water either side of the path.


The trees and reflections made some confusing views.


The trail ended for us at Pentewan harbour. The photo below shows the sluice gate built in 1872. This  controlled the water used to flush out the harbour basin. 


A few more small trees and quite a lot of water.


And then we reached the now defunct harbour at Pentewan.


From here we retraced our steps alongside the river.


I guess we walked just under three miles. So nothing very strenuous, but it's always uplifting to get out in the fresh air and amongst the trees and nature.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
