Walk - Looe, Talland & Polperro
5.7 miles (9.2 km)
Looe Station - PL13 1HP Looe Station
Moderate - The first mile is on flat tarmac, while the rest is on paths, with some ascent and descent.
A coastal walk taking in a holy legend and a sixth century monastery, as well as an eighteenth century eccentric and a nineteenth century engineer. There are rockpools on the beaches, with remnants of shipwrecks and tales of smugglers, and the walk ends with a stroll up through the picturesque fishing village of Polperro to Crumplehorn, where you can catch a bus back to Looe. A good autumn walk for spotting migrant birds: finches and warblers in the hedges, skuas and terns offshore, and sometimes even the more unusual Sooty shearwater.
