The highest land in Cornwall is Brown Willy, at 1,375 feet, closely followed by its neighbour, Rough Tor, at 1.312 feet. Both of these Tors can be reached on foot, and the path from the West side is reasonably gentle, unlike the much steeper Eastern approach.
Both these tors are highly visible when you enter into Cornwall, especially when driving along the A 30 road, between Bolventor and Bodmin.
Camelford, North Cornwall
"Camelford or Camelot?"
Camelford, a small market town in North Cornwall, on the main A39 road, which runs the length of North Devon, into Mid-Cornwall, and terminates at Falmouth, on the South coast.
Camelford can be your starting point for exploring many of the ancient archaeological sites which abound here. Places such at the world-famous Tintagel, with its coastal headland Castle, with links to King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. And Rough Tor and Brown Willy, on nearby Bodmin Moor. Late Neolithic remains have been found here, dating back 8 thousand years or so.
I will be building this page over the coming summer months (2004) as I hope to be showing some of the places of interest to a VT member, visiting from New Hampshire, USA. Anyone intending to visit, and wanting information, please EMail me, and I'll see what I can do.
