Lady Vale walk at Cardinham Woods

Lady Vale walk (Cornish: Kerdh Nans Arlodhes)

Cardinham Woods' most popular route is the streamside Lady Vale walk. The track follows the river upstream to Lady Vale Bridge, which takes its name from The Chapel of Our Lady that stood beside the river during the 12th century. Enjoy dappled shade and the sound of rippling water. There are plenty of dog dip spots along the stream.

The Lady Vale walk also features the Gruffalo Party activity trail and Gruffalo sculptures.

This trail is suitable for our Tramper. There is a short, slight slope on the return stretch of the Lady Vale walk. There is seating along the route.

For a shorter walk, cross the Centenary Bridge to return to the car park. This loop is 0.9 mile / 1.45km.
