Circular walk from Delabole to Lanteglos

Delabole to Lanteglos

The stiles at directions 31 and 32 are broken which makes it hard to cross the barbed wire fences (Cornwall Council are aware). People with mobility issues, dogs or young children may find this difficult.

A circular walk through bluebell woodland, fields and along back lanes from Delabole to Camelford's parish church at Lanteglos, returning via the Iron Age forts of Castle Goff and Delinuth Camp.

Starting from Delabole quarry, the route goes through Helland Barton woods to Trewalder, and then along the River Allen from Treforda to Lanteglos church. The return route passes the hill forts of Castle Goff and Delinuth Camp, before returning to Delabole via Deli woods.


  • Delabole Quarry - once the largest man-made pit in the world
  • Pretty woodland at Helland Barton, with bluebells in spring
  • Celtic churchyard at Lanteglos with a collection of ancient crosses
  • Remains of Iron Age hill forts at Castle Goff and Delinuth Camp
  • Winding country lanes and tracks with pleasant views over surrounding countryside
  • Variety of wildlife along the River Allen


  • During summer the path from Treforda can get overgrown. Take a stick, and secateurs if you have them, to clear your way.
