River Fowey from source to sea

An exciting cross-curricular project involving two days exploring the beautiful River Fowey, (available from October to the end of March).

  • Day 1 ~ Journey to the source of the river on Bodmin Moor.
  • Day 2 ~ Canoe the Tidal Estuary from Lostwithiel to the Sea
Building up our Map Skills, we spend Day 1 criss-crossing the River Fowey, on foot, taking in the environment, habitat and landscape that is both seen and unseen, to `discover` the Moorland Source.
On Day 2, we get up close and personal as we board Rafted Canoes and paddle downstream from ancient Lostwithiel to the coastal town of Fowey, seeing for ourselves how the landscape and historical use of land has changed, as well as examining how the river changes from fresh water to a tidal estuary.
