Has anyone done the SWCP recently, or parts of it?

Thinking of walking from Falmouth to Newquay next spring and was wondering if anyone could give me some background or tips?

I see that Lounge Lizard was having a chat about it and I wondered what transpired?

No Ive no info on that, but without wishing to hijack the thread, I see Gipsies are objecting to a short stretch of the Welsh coastal path from being opened, and the entire project being fully completed, as it passes behind their campsite.

I did it in 2007, hopefully someone will have more recent experience. If not then let me know and I'll dig out my journal.

Harland I would appreciate reading your journal. If you do not want to post it on this site, you could always email it to me.
Thanks for anything you dig up.

Harland. Thanks a lot. Good detail. Now I need to put this next to a map and make notations. Thanks again for the speedy reply.

You will pass a small hut selling them (3 four years ago). Everybody was buying one .... including us. Keep your eyes out on Chapel Porth beach!

For anyone who has completed the SWCP there is a free badge for those who want a memory of the 630 mile walk. After 630 miles I take anything that is free! See:-
