Our walking group heads to Gwennap Pit

Yesterday’s circular walk took the group from Redruth town centre to Gwennap Pit. The weather was ideal for walking but some low cloud meant we could not enjoy some of the views.

We were warmly welcomed at Grennap Pit by very friendly volunteers. It was interesting to walk around and view some of the archives that are held there. There was also a good cup of tea or coffee available made by the volunteers.


We then made our way uphill to the summit of Carn Marth where we ate our picnic next to a flooded quarry.

The rest of the walk had some stunning views of the countryside and the heathers which are just beginning to put on a colourful show. We ended the day by a walk around the town centre where we enjoyed yet more refreshments!
