Our new 2022 Guide to the Luxulyan Valley is here! 


The long-awaited Friends of Luxulyan Valley’s 64-page souvenir guide to the Valley is now available to buy. Our new edition includes an A4 colour map of the area and is packed with photographs old and new in full colour throughout. The story charts the history of the Valley from Medieval times to its zenith during the Age of Enlightenment, when the ingenuity and ambition of one man created an industrial powerhouse, the remaining structures and landscape of which has earned the its Valley World Heritage status.

Today the Valley has mostly been reclaimed by nature, a beautiful haven for wildlife and perhaps one of Cornwall’s best kept secrets. Our guide provides information on common flora and fauna that might be seen when visiting, and there are numerous recommended walks to help readers discover the many historic and natural wonders of the Valley for themselves.

We are grateful to all those Friends who contributed much time and effort in writing and producing this guide and to Cornwall Council, for funding and for sharing their expertise about this World Heritage Site.

All proceeds from the sale of guidebooks goes to fund the activities of the Friends of Luxulyan Valley.
