Field trip to Mid-Cornwall (IA Section)

Sat. 15 June 2019 - Sun. 16 June 2019

£3 – £10

IASDA / SCIAS Field Trip Visit to Mid-Cornwall, part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site.

Saturday 15th June

Luxulyan Valley

9.00 am Assemble at the Carclaze Inn. PL25 4EJ from the A391 (SX 02272 54668).

It is hoped to visit various features constructed by J.T. Austen (later Treffry) and others. The route will be approximately 5 miles and we should be back in the village by 5 pm at the latest.

Sunday 16th June

An exploration of a transformed landscape

9.30 am Meet at in the council pay-and-display car park at the eastern end of Par Beach (SX 08721 53252).

It is impossible to understand the changes wrought by J.T. Treffry, and his successors by visiting Luxulyan Valley alone. His influence also affected the lower reaches of the river valley, and the estuary of the Luxulyan or Par River has been utterly transformed in the last 300 years. The route will be about 5 miles and we will aim to finish by about 4 pm.

The cost for each day will be £3 per person for DA members and £5 pp for non-members.

For full details and to reserve a place please contact the organiser, preferably by email. Acknowledgement of booking will be made by email.

Further details of this trip may be found in the 5th edition of the IASDA newsletter just published.
