Mevagissey and the Lost Gardens of Heligan

You need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details for this walk and have an active subscription. Please join, or log in above if you are already a member.

Starting this walk at Heligan has several advantages - there is a long, slow descent to get you warmed up and the parking is free! You can also stop off in Mevagissey for a drink or a snack. After that you will be ready to tackle the coastal path and the climb up from the coast. The walk, like many on the Cornish coast, offers a mixture of terrain in a very short distance while the climbs tend to be short and not too tiring. Away from the coast the paths are not walked as frequently and may be more overgrown - do this walk and help to put that right.

Message from the local footpaths officer: Dear Mr Stewart, Further to your email about footpath 91 in the parish of St Austell, I can confirm that a Ranger has been out to see it and the barbed wire is no longer there. Yours sincerely Tony Garvin

I did this walk last weekend and had a problem. At Waymark 14 the second gate had barbed wire across it and also the path at the side ot it. I was able to retrace my steps and by using the road could rejoin the walk at Waymark 18. Ernie Anderson
