Walk of the Month: The Loe
Our monthly walk, specially chosen for us by iWalk Cornwall.
Our November walk is a circular walk around the Loe Pool, the largest natural freshwater lake in Cornwall, and along the Loe Bar, one of Cornwall’s most treacherous beaches on which 100 of those onboard the HMS Anson drowned metres from the shore, motivating the invention of the rocket lifesaving apparatus that saved thousands of lives.
- Cornwall’s largest natural freshwater lake
- Historic Penrose Estate
- Mature broadleaf woodland in the Cober valley
- The Loe Bar – a geographical oddity with some rare wildlife.
The walk follows the River Cober through Coronation Park to the bridge and then joins the tree-lined bridleway through Penrose to the coast near Porthleven. The route then crosses the Loe Bar and follows the path around the Loe Pool to reach the woods. Paths through the woods and a track past the engine house of Wheal Pool complete the circular route.
