St Ives Weekend - St Michaels Way & Carn Euny

1st & 2nd June 2024



1.5 days


Day 1 Saturday 1st June - St Michaels Way

Join us on a captivating journey along St Michael's Way in Cornwall, a unique one-day Nordic Walking experience you won't want to miss! Traversing the historic north-south line from Penwith, this route offers an extraordinary blend of Cornwall’s heritage and natural beauty.

Discover the rich tapestry of Cornwall's past, walking in the footsteps of pilgrims who once journeyed from Lelant to Marazion, historically taking this route to avoid the treacherous waters around Land's End. Our walk will lead you through a landscape dotted with ancient stones, holy wells, and sites steeped in the legends of saints and giants.

St Michael's Way is not just another walking path; it's the only pilgrimage route in Britain that's part of a European Cultural Route, making it a genuine segment of the Camino to Santiago. Along the way, we'll explore fascinating historical landmarks, including five churches, four holy wells, two hillforts, and the sites of two former chapels.

Every step on this route is a journey through history, set against the backdrop of Cornwall's breathtaking scenery. Whether you're a history buff, a nature lover, or just looking for a unique walking experience, St Michael's Way offers something for everyone.

Don't miss this opportunity to join us on this remarkable walk.

Day 2 Sunday 2nd June - Sancreed & Care Euny

Step back in time with us on a captivating walk through history! Our journey will take us through the peaceful countryside to the age-old Celtic church and the sacred Holy Well at Sancreed. With every step, we delve into the mysteries of our ancestors.

The highlight of our walk is the Iron Age village of Carn Euny, home to the intriguing fogou chamber. This enigmatic structure has long been a source of fascination and puzzle for archaeologists. Carn Euny stands as one of the most well-preserved ancient villages in South West England, showcasing its rich history from the Iron Age to late Roman times. Here, you'll see the foundations of stone houses from the 2nd to 4th centuries AD, some with walls still as high as a metre.

At the centre of the village, you'll find its most extraordinary feature – the fogou. This underground stone-walled passage is a rare type of Iron Age monument, found exclusively in the far west of Cornwall. Join us on this walk to explore these historic sites, where the past is alive and waiting to be discovered.
