The Hurlers – A Creative Walk under prehistoric skies
Thursday, July 8: 10am-noon
FREE event, but booking essential
A stroll through prehistory and the ancient landscape around The Hurlers with artists Joanna Mayes and Justin Wiggan, guided by archaeoastronomer Carolyn Kennett. Visiting the enigmatic triple stone circle, The Pipers standing stones and impressive Rillaton Barrow, the walk will consider the ancient landscape and how the prehistoric people connected with the solar cycle. Working in groups we will take turns to experience Super8 filmmaking, sound recording and specialist archaeoastronomy knowledge.
Feel free to bring a camera or a notebook and enjoy our creative walk in that way if you prefer!
Meet at Minion’s village green next to the shop and Cheesewring Hotel. The session will take you on a 2-mile foray around The Hurlers Stone Circles.
This is off track and may be a little muddy in places so wear appropriate footwear and come prepared for all weathers. Feel free to bring a packed lunch to enjoy with us afterwards at The Hurlers, weather dependent.
Walk difficulty: We will It will be at a gentle pace with plenty of time for creative exploration.
There are buses into the local village of St Cleer – the number 74 runs hourly from Liskeard and Callington. St Cleer is ¾ mile away from the start point.

The final work will be on show at the Old Library as part of IntoBodmin’s autumn celebrations of the local environment.
