Town Walks and Information Leaflets

Active Travel Maps

Active Travel maps which bring sustainable travel information together in one place, have been designed and produced by Sustrans, in assocation with Four Point Mapping. The maps show schools, local shops and green spaces and how to get to them on foot, by bike or by public transport. Further information about cycle routes in the local area is also available.

The free Hayle, St Erth and St Ives map can be downloaded here.

Hayle Townscape Heritage Initiative guide cover

Hayle Townscape Heritage Initiative

“That Hayle was once the centre of the Industrial Revolution is a best kept secret. Widely known for its beautiful bay, golden sands and surf, there is also much interest in Hayle as a heritage town. Its importance as a major mining port, which also saw great advances in engineering technologies, has led to it being a part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining World Heritage Site.”

So begins the Heritage Trails booklet which contains three walks around Hayle together with lots of interesting history.

The booklet was financed as part of the Hayle Townscape Heritage Initiative and the printed copies disappeared very quickly. Thanks to Cornwall Council conservation officer, Penny Stokes, and to the designers Nixon Design of Hayle, you can now download a copy here.

Perceptive readers will notice that the Penmare Hotel has been pulled down and that a number of other changes have taken place around town since this booklet was last updated. It should not be too hard to adjust and I think you will find the walks and the information fun and useful.
