About

Experienced walker and leader, former member of Public Rights of Way team and volunteer rep for the South West Coast Path Association for Mevagissey to Polperro sections of the National Trail. Also a supporting artist on BBCTV Poldark S2-5. Find me on TripAdvisor.

Offering a year-round selection of dates and routes for those not wanting to walk alone, as a taster/confidence builder or to add depth and interest to your walk. Walks start in Fowey unless otherwise stated. DATES AND TIMES TO SUIT YOU WHEREVER POSSIBLE - JUST ASK.

Regular walks from 1.5 to 6 miles and 1 to 4.5 hours, with discussion covering topics from history and the growth of Fowey to literary connections and identification of flora, delivered in an easy-going style. Guests’ questions are always very welcome.

Well-behaved dogs welcome, children by arrangement (this is only to ensure their comfort, safety and enjoyment - I’m very pro-walking-children!).

I will also cater for private groups on any South West England route - see website for details

NEW for 2022 - Poldark filming location walks led by a BBCTV Poldark supporting artist. Bookable as a single day tour or a set of three consecutive days, each visiting different parts of Cornwall.
