From St Germans, through Antony, Mount Edgcumbe, Kingsand and Cawsand to the Rame Peninsula; along the coast to Portwrinkle, Seaton, Looe, Talland Bay, Polperro and Lantic Bay, with diversions inland to Hessenford, the valleys of the East and West Looe rivers, the abandoned mines of Caradon and the old stannary town of Liskeard, Paul Lightfoot takes us to a 'forgotten corner' of Cornwall. South East Cornwall encompasses four nature reserves; two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, three Sites of Special Scientific Interest, and part of the World Heritage Site of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape. It includes archaeological sites; country churches; historic buildings, and one of the prettiest branch railway lines in the country. There is a variety of beaches, and a stretch of the spectacular Cornwall Coast Path.
