Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.

Penwith and Kerrier cover the west of Cornwall from Portreath on the north-west coast, west to Land’s End, easterly along the south coast, around the Lizard peninsula and up to and including the Helford river estuary. The coast path follows the whole of this coast line, a distance of about 90 miles with endless paths, beautiful beaches and small harbours.

But that is not all - inland, and particularly in the Penwith district, there are 800 archaeological sites, some dating back to the Neolithic era, while mainly in the Kerrier district there is a plethora of old mining sites and interesting industrial archaeology. Add to this the open moors, hidden valleys, and bluebell woods all laced with a dramatic display of wild flowers and you have a walker’s paradise.

Penwith Kerrier ramblers have walks at least once a week all the year round led by local leaders who will make you most welcome. See for yourself - come and join us.

If you would like information about joining, please contact the Penwith Kerrier Group secretary and membership secretary: Mrs Sylvia Ronan using the contact details above and we would be happy to welcome you to our group.
