Mt Edgcumbe ‘Seats with a View’ walk

This will be an informal walk led by committee members to look at some of the renovated features mentioned by James Gossip, Cornwall Archaeological Unit, in his lecture to us last October. It will be based on the ‘Seats with a View’ historic landscape walk published by Mt Edgcumbe County Park. The PAS walk will cover the more accessible features but afterwards folk can do their own thing and enjoy the Park or Cawsand options as they wish. Meet at the Drywalk Car Park (has toilets) which is uphill from the House and to the SW. Grid ref: SX450527. If using the Cremyll Ferry the 09:45 sailing from Stonehouse should suffice.

Plymouth Archaeology Society (PAS) consists mainly of amateur members with an enthusiastic interest in a wide range of archaeological disciplines. We wish to share our enthusiasm for archaeology in general and provide better knowledge and support for the abundant local sites in our area.

Visitors are invited to attend any of our regular meetings (coach trips require pre-booking) and we hope you will be tempted to become a full member. PAS is open to all to apply for membership (membership information).

P.A.S. organise monthly winter lectures by invited guest speakers (winter programme). The summer programme consists of visits to local sites of interest. These are usually guided by experts with local knowledge of the site concerned (summer programme). The summer programme is augmented by coach trips to sites a little further afield. These are usually day trips but can occasionally involve a weekend away.

We also organise workshops to benefit those with a practical interest in archaeology. In the past these have included - surveying for archaeologists, geophysics and pollen analysis (archaeology workshops).

Any damage or threats to archaeological sites should be reported urgently to either The City Archaeologist based in the Planning Dept (01752 305433) or the City Museum (01752 304774). Archaeological finds should be reported to the City Museum.


Our meetings are usually held on the first Monday of each month and start sharp at 7pm unless otherwise indicated. They are open to non-members (except where indicated below) but a £4 donation is requested to cover our expenses. Appropriate footwear & clothing must be worn.

Our walks are not suitable for dogs.

NOTE: This is a Saturday Event, not our normal ‘first Monday in the month’.
