June 13th Liskeard to Looe bell walk.

On a hot sunny day, we headed off on foot from Liskeard train station at 9am taking the road down to Lemellion and the site of the wool depot which closed in Feb 2021. Then taking tracks and footpaths stopping at Herodsfoot, All Saints, and popped in to see Ian the churchwarden and his dog Cheddy. Ian knew all about South Hill being a farm rep back in the day! A pretty little church with one bell, which we were allowed to ring, an interested bell rope …. The windows have recently been renovated by The Pipers, who have been working on St Sampson’s… and the community have painted the inside, with lots of scaffolding.

We followed a shady path alongside the West Looe river down to Watergate and into Looe…. where we ran into a couple locals and of course rewarded ourselves with ice creams. …. after nearly 12 miles well deserved. We took the 3:15pm train back to Liskeard.
