First CAS walk for 2019. Week St Mary and Penhallam moated mansion with Nicholas Johnson and Cathy Parkes
Starting in Week St Mary we will look at this ‘town that never grew but endured’, its street plan, church and castle earthworks, then walk to the valley below with the Cardinhams’ hunting ‘palace’ in its moat in the woods, for picnic lunch. Returning by footpath we will climb high up to Ashbury hillfort by kind permission of the farmer. This part of the walk is steep (the views from the fort are fantastic!) It is also on private farmland, so please don’t bring dogs.
Meet at 11am at Week St Mary Village Hall car park
