Bosigran Courtyard HousesJoin us for our 2022 Walking Weekend! Four walks will be held over Saturday 15 October and Sunday 16 October. Guided by the PLP Access Officer and PLP Ecologist, and with support from CASPN (Cornish Ancient Sites Protection Network), this is an opportunity for extra insight into some of the amazing places we’ve been working!

Details of each of the four walks is below. Availability is limited, so please click on the links to register for the walks. Please note that if you intend to come to more than one of the walks you will need to register for each one separately. Booking for all of the walks will close at 5pm on Friday 14 October.

All of these walks are all intended to be relatively short and accessible, will last two hours each and will be led at a gentle pace. Attendees are advised to dress sensibly for the conditions, be prepared for rain, and wear sturdy footwear. Please make sure you book a space for each party member.
