The River Fal

A historical guide from source to sea.

The Fal is known as a famous estuary on the south coast of Cornwall, busy with shipping for hundreds of years. The river itself is perhaps less well known, but nevertheless its rural course is full of great historical interest.

The objective of this book is to bring that history to the eyes of all those who love the Cornish countryside.

The river is described from its source above the wild beauty of Goss Moor, down to where it meets the main estuary. The unique underlying geology has resulted in a fascinating varied terrain.
