Walk: Godolphin Warren


Length: 5 3/4 miles

This walk explores the heartland of the Godolphins, one of the most influential families of the early Cornish mining industry. They ascended to the highest office from the wealth of minerals extracted from around Godolphin and Tregonning Hills. Their estate has remained almost unchanged for the last 200 years or so and is now part of a short-listed bid to achieve World Heritage Site status for Cornish mining. The terrain varies from the wilds of the hill to sheltered woodland in the river valley, all havens for wildlife. We pass by Godolphin House, the largest and grandest house in 17th century Cornwall, with extensive gardens and an adjoining deerpark.
