Travel to Cadgwith

Cadgwith Pilot Gig Club race with our four gigs. "Buller", "Socoa", "Rose of Cadgwith" and "Tamarisk”

Cadgwith is a charming little village in Cornwall, near the Lizard Village (the most southerly point in Britain). It has a sheltered cove, and a steep street either side with lovely cottages.

After Helston, RNAS Culdrose airbase (is on your left), follow road to the Lizard, There are some tight bends, gigs are beat to have a safety car in front for the valley with its very tight corners!

Take 2nd turn off on left to Cadgwith (HGV route) follow the long straight road and follow left at the corner. Over the brow of the hill there are 2 granite posts on your right - go down there. The car park is signed on the left - straight on will lead you into Cadgwith

No parking at all down in the village. If you have been there you'll know why. Park near the top of the village, at the car park sign, THE FIRST CAR PARK is the only one.

At the bottom of the car park is a small path It is a very beautiful walk though the centre of the valley with great views. Walk down the lovely wooded path from the car park, with its views across the narrow valley, with many flowers and past the famous small church, about the size of a room. St. Mary's is without doubt the most unpretentious Church.

There are photos of the Church and the village at thelizard.info

There is no wheelchair access on the top middle of the path, so please use the road.

If so please drive down to the seafront. It is VERY narrow, (no joke), no large vehicles can pass, a car can, (be prepared to reverse a little). After going up the other side of the seafront, you will have to drive a couple of miles through Ruan Minor with some very narrow bends to get back to the car park. The walk is quite short.

PLEASE leave gigs in car park until instructed. Please contact us before bringing gigs to the village, so we can help.
