The Golitha Walk & Talk

We had a great turn out on Saturday for the Bluebells and Industry Walk around Golitha Falls led by Calum Beeson and Jane.

Under the clay pipe in Golitha

During the course of the walk Calum and Jane helped the group identify the various uses Golitha has had over the years. While discussing the different industrial remains the group followed the river through the nature reserve. The site’s geology, topography and wildlife provided a great deal of conversation and Calum even demonstrated how the river used to be panned. The walk concluded with a fantastic display of bluebells, which was breath taking.

If you haven’t already visited Golitha Falls it really is worth a look, a local beauty spot which is particularly special at this time of the year. For more information and directions, click here.
