Lanhydrock estate, towards Lostwithiel & Restormel castle

A fabulous tree stump at Lanhydrock, looking towards Lostwithiel and Restormel castle. It is said that during the civil war in 1644, a significant battle was won in the area by King Charles & after he visited Lanhydrock from Boconnoc Lord Robartes planted a line of trees from Respryn bridge through the estate, was this one of them?

How the tree lined drive looks today

Respryn bridge

The bridge King Charles rode over with his men, back in 1644 while travelling from Boconnoc to Lanhydrock.

Park in the car park near the bridge to find a number of fabulous woodland walks both onto the estate and alongside the river Fowey, very popular with dog walkers, there is also a good stretch of free fishing in the river down stream of Respryn bridge to the wooden footbridge…
