Set off inland through Dean Quarry where igneous "gabbro" rock is mined. Wonderful cliff-top walking takes you along the path with views across to the Manacles Reef. The reef lies very close to the shipping lanes from Falmouth, where many lives have been lost and ships wrecked. From here reach the former fishing villages of Porthoustock and Porthallow.

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.
