Walk - Mawgan Porth & St Mawgan
5.4 miles (8.8 km)
Mawgan Porth car park - TR8 4BA Mawgan Porth car park
Moderate - Coastal path and footpaths through fields and woods that may be muddy or wet. There is plenty of ascent and descent, including some short stretches that are steep.
Heading inland to the village of St Mawgan, this walk passes below an unusual Saxon settlement before following the stream through fields and woodland. Looping through the village, it passes the Tudor home of the Arundell family, whose elaborate former chapel (now the Roman Catholic church) is famous for its sanctuary lamp, never once extinguished since before the Reformation. From here the route makes its way through fields bright with ox-eye daisies to the high cliffs towering above several secret sandy coves.
