Day 4 - Lanivet to Fowey –  The Saints Way

13 miles moderate grade walking - What this grade means

Today complete the first crossing of Cornwall Coast to Coast via the mangrove looking swamp of Redmoor Nature Reserve, taking in stunning views from Helman's Tor, before following old drove routes to the village of Lanlivery and the well positioned Crown Inn.

From here the Saints Way drops to the magical Fowey river valley, meeting the mighty estuary at the inland harbour of Golant, passing two holy wells en route. A final section to Fowey passes locations from the book ‘Wind in the Willows’, set in idyllic wooded creeks, before arriving in the dramatic natural harbour at unspoilt Fowey, with all the facilities and atmosphere for a memorable introduction to the South Cornwall section of the South West Coastal Path.
