Walking in Falmouth

Forty four members of the Society spent six nights in April on a walking holiday based in Falmouth and organised by Terry Arnold. We were lucky to enjoy weather that was unseasonably warm and sunny, with no rain at all and a cooling wind on only two days.

Two walks were offered each day and while some walked a total of 49 miles there were also activities for those who didn’t wish to walk at all.

Walks included visits to St Mawes, the Lizard, Mawnan Smith and Flushing but the highlight was probably a walk to the creek side church at St Just in Roseland and its wonderful flower filled garden cemetery.

As usual, clicking on the small image will bring up a larger version.

St Michael's Mount
More than half the group took a day off from walking for a successful visit to St Michael’s Mount near Marazion.

Membly Hotel
The Membly Hall Hotel in Falmouth was very comfortable with excellent food and a willing staff and our coach driver Shaun deserves a particular mention for his skill and patience in keeping to our complicated timetable whilst ferrying us around the often very narrow lanes of south Cornwall in a very large coach. Yet another very successful Society holiday with particular thanks to Terry and the others who helped him.
