Exploring the Fowey Valley, Paperback Book

Exploring the Fowey Valley Paperback

Illustrated by Paul Lightfoot

Part of the Pocket Cornwall series


From its source in the marshes of Bodmin Moor, the River Fowey follows a winding course for 40 kilometres, southwards through the Draynes Valley, over Golitha Falls, west through the Glynn Valley, then southwards again to its estuary and the town that bears its name.

This book follows the course of the river and its tributaries, and explores the valley's beautiful landscapes and rich history from Bronze Age settlements and tin streaming on the moors to early medieval castles and churches, military campaigns of the civil war, the mining, industry and commerce of the nineteenth century, some of the county's strongest literary associations, and the leisure and recreation activities of the modern era.
