Summary: The Saints Way long distance footpath follows the route thought to have been taken by the ancient Cornish and Welsh Saints across mid-Cornwall which was the alternative to traveling by boat around Land's End. The walk cuts across the county by way of valleys, woodland, moors and villages. From Padstow on the north coast, it follows Little Petherick Creek upstream before climbing past Trenance to cross St Breock Downs. The way then continues to Withiel, Tremorebridge, Lanivet and Fenton Pits before climbing to Helman Tor. The way then continues through Lanlivery, No Man's Land, Foot Bridge and Golant before finishing in Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall.
