Prideaux Woods Walk

Begin by following the track of what was once a horse-drawn tramway then continue on to the access path of the leat which was once used to drive the waterwheels of the Fowey Consols mines before crossing the Treffry Viaduct spanning the Luxulyan Valley.

From here, the route follows the leat that once carried water to the harbour at Charlestown then joins the Saint’s Way. Continue along the Saint’s Way past the Iron Age settlement at Prideaux to St Blazey. From here follow the towpath of the Par Canal back to Ponts Mill.

Along the walk, nature lovers can appreciate the broadleaf woodland and spot dragonflies and damselflies along the Par Canal.

Embark on this hike to see an array of lovely woodland wildlife and historic sights…
