Walk - Tregardock Cliff
5.8 miles (9.3 km)
Delabole High Street - PL33 9EH Delabole High Street
Moderate - Quiet country roads and lanes, coastal and inland paths, which may be wet or muddy. Some stiles, steps and steep gradients.
A rugged walk above a windswept coastline where Atlantic breakers have sculpted the slate into dramatic cliffs and ledges. Here valleys left high and dry by the process empty their streams onto the shoreline far below in coastal waterfalls and tiny rocky beaches are accessible only via plunging paths or boats alone. The sandy beach at Tregardock was once the site of a mine exploiting a rich seam of silver ore, and there are the remains of coastal pits where the famous Delabole slate was quarried. Look out for kestrels and peregrines, and even deer.
