Saints Way Walkers

This 27 mile route is well signed with Celtic cross markers and takes you across Cornwall from Padstow in the North to Fowey on the South coast.

It follows the probable route of early Christian travellers making their way from Ireland and Wales to Brittany and the European mainland. The route starts at the picturesque harbour in Padstow and heads south through Little Petherick, St Breock Downs and Lanivet before joining the Fowey River near Lostwithiel for a lovely waterside stretch that leads to Fowey. An alternative route (covering the last 11 miles) passes through the Tywardreath site of a medieval monastic settlement.

Four Padstow men completed the walk in one day to raise money for charity (L+R Michael Swabey, Duncan Barnes, Mark Constance and Martin Rich) Well done guys.
