Easy - Paths and lanes that may be muddy, with several short stretches of ascent and descent.
A short walk around a strategically important headland on the River Fowey, used to defend the estuary and harbour for over two thousands years. With terrific views out to sea, the walk passes the remains of the castle built by Henry VIII and modified during the Crimean War and again in the Second World War. It also visits two small and secluded coves before heading up a woodland path past Daphne du Maurier's 'Manderley'.
