Moorswater Walk

You are invited join us on a circular walk leaving Stuart House, Barras Street, Liskeard at 10am on Saturday 4th April in remembrance of  Bo Foakes, who generously supported the Trust. The walk will take in Ladye Park, Moorswater, Coombe etc. and was an area Bo was particularly interested in. There will be some very steep ups and downs and it will be muddy, so good walking footwear and suitable clothing are a must.  There will also be an unique opportunity for you to have a light lunch (needs to be booked in advance) back in Stuart House after the walk.

If you wish to come on the walk, but avoid the trek down and back, please meet us under the A38 overpass in Moorswater at 10:30am, you will though still need good clothing and footwear.

To book a lunch please contact Sioux on        01579 347347    or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
