On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Holywell to St Agnes

The path passes through an ancient coastal mining district following rugged cliff tops. The mines along this stretch are home to bats, including the rare Greater Horseshoe bat. Not only do you pass many remnants of the mining industry, but you will also see some fascinating geology along the way, especially around Cligga Head. The path can prove strenuous in places with some tiring ascents and descents, but there are also some more restful sections with level walking above high, sheer cliffs and fantastic views of your journey ahead. Look out for razorbills, guillemots and kittiwakes nesting around St Agnes Head. Refreshments and services are available en-route at Perranporth where the Watering Hole by the beach comes recommended. The Driftwood Spars Hotel at Trevaunance Cove is a former tin mine store and is recommended together with the Turks Head and the Railway at St. Agnes
