Cornwall Ramblers

The Penwith and Kerrier group of Conwall Ramblers covers the west of Cornwall from Portreath on the north-west coast, west to Land’s End, easterly along the south coast, around the Lizard peninsula and up to and including the Helford river estuary. The landscape is varied with the coast path, beaches, harbours, archaeological sites, old mining sites, open moors and hidden valleys. They have a walk at least once a week all year round led by local leaders.

St Michael's Way

St Michael's Way was thought to have been used by pilgrims, missionaries and travellers, especially those from Ireland and Wales, to avoid crossing the treacherous waters around Land's End. It is thought to date back to pre-historic times (10,000BCE - 410CE). The trail stretches from Lelant to Marazion and stretches 19.5km. St Michael's Way has been developed with the guidance of the Bredereth Sen Jago (Cornish Pilgrims of St James) and the Cornish Bureau for European Relations.

The Cornish Way

The Cornish Way is a project developed by the Cornwall Council Countryside Service, in partnership with Sustrans. Starting at the county boundary near Bude, its six inter-linking trails for cyclists and walkers pass through towns and villages as they make their way through Cornwall's distinctive countryside to Land's End. Certain off-road routes are also accessible to equestrians and the mobility-impaired. With mainly minor and rural road and traffic-free, off-road routes there are opportunities for new or novice cyclists as well as some challenging routes for the more experienced. Even if you don't have your own bike, you can hire one for the day. The Cornish Way forms a major part of National Route 3 of the National Cycle Network. Within Penwith it runs from Hayle and ends at Lands End. On the way it passes through St Erth, Crowlas, Long Rock, Penzance, Newlyn, Mousehole, Lamorna, St Buryan and Sennen Cove.

Eco Drive

Eco-drive was formed to give people the choice of using Electric Vehicles. Electric vehicless are often a viable alternative for many private motorists and commercial operations but have been under-promoted in the UK. Eco-drive is not 'pro-car' but they are being realistic. People will continue to use cars so where possible these should have as low an impact as possible. The key is safe, reliable and convenient recharging. Charging Stations for EVs are the equivalent of filling station fuel pumps for conventional vehicles. Usually these will be used at the vehicle's normal 'home' or base, but may be in other locations. Eco-drive is partnering with Cornwall Council for Cornwall to become one of the UK's first 'Plugged In Places'. The aim is to provide a network of around 400 charging stations across Cornwall for, initially, a public sector fleet and subsequently private users and tourists.
