Exploring Antony Passage and the Lynher riverside footpath

By Kate Jewell

Take a walk down to Antony Passage, a quiet Cornish village just to the south of Saltash, with its historic tidal mill pond, old mill and tiny harbour, and contrasting views open up: the imposing railway viaduct crossing the mouth of Forder Lake, the expanse of mud flats at low tide and the narrow street down to the harbour-side cottages. Follow the public footpath through the dense and varied woodland along the River Lynher and explore the tidal shore line; discover the old railway embankment and climb up to the open expanse of sheep pasture with stunning views across the river. Return to the starting point along a leafy county road, taking a short detour to view the London to Penzance railway line following the "new" route opened in 1908. This pleasant walk will take you only a scant hour to complete unless, of course, like me you stop to take photographs, poke about between tide washed stones and talk to nonplussed sheep.
