Following a proposal by the St Agnes Chamber of Commerce to the Parish Council, the Regeneration Forum was formed in 1996 as a standing committee of the Parish Council. Examples of its work can be seen in the Millennium Green, Mount Hawke and the Garden of Rest in St Agnes village.
The Ten Walks, the most recent Forum project, was made possible by funding from the Local Heritage Initiative (which is administered by the Countryside Agency) and the Nationwide Building Society.
The walk descriptions were written by members of the local community, each in a style that suited the interests and expertise of the writers.
|Walk 1||St Agnes Village Trail||Roger Radcliffe|
|Walk 2||St Agnes Beacon||David Docking / Isobel Burrows|
|Walk 3||Porthtowan, Banns Vale, Mount Hawke and Chapel Porth||Audrey Miller / Clive Benney|
|Walk 4||Wheal Rose, the Poldice Plateway and Mawla||John Slater / Dawn Brown|

|Walk 7||Wheal Coates, Chapel Porth and Wheal Lawrence Valley||Isobel Burrows|
|Walk 8||Water Lane, Wheal Butson and Jericho Valley||Doug Mitchell|

Other members of the project team include Kath Miles, Angela Parsons, and George Collinge (Community Development Officer of Carrick District Council).
Clive Benney has checked every walk for historical accuracy and Dawn Brown has checked and walked every walk for accuracy of directions.
Our thanks to Clive Benney for supplying the historical postcards and photographs, George Kimmins for shooting and producing the project video and Graeme Bexley for the illustrated maps and graphic design.
The project was coordinated by Mario de Pace.
Copies of these walks are available from local shops and Tourist Information Centres.
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the factual and technical accuracy of these maps the Forum and the Designer accept no liability for errors, omissions or any inconvenience arising from them. Walkers are advised to check weather conditions, clothing, equipment and provisions before setting off.
