Sir John Betjeman Walk

Daymer Bay c Roger Lombard
Rock, near Wadebridge
PL27 6LD
Dog Friendly
A gentle 4 mile walk along part of the South West Coast Path through the dunes beside the golden beaches on the eastern bank of the River Camel, taking in Poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman's grave in the churchyard of the tiny St Enodoc Church.


The route passes Brea Hill, site of Bronze Age burial mounds and later a Roman encampment, and there is an optional detour to the holy well used by the Welsh hermit Enodoc to baptise his converts. Starting from the Quarry car park in Rock, the walk is mostly flat and travels through sandy grassland.
