Photographs taken 2011
Here are some more images of the River Fowey at Golitha, and of Golitha Falls themselves. These photos were all taken in January 2011, except for the first image looking along the river from just down from Draynes Bridge, which was taken in April 2012. Golitha Falls in January shows the trees at their barest, which allows much more light ito the gorge itself, and it can certainly make exploration around the Falls a little easier with less entanglement of undergrowth! For further images of Golitha Falls during the Winter, see Golitha Falls in the Snow.

There always seem to be branches or trunks of fallen trees at this
time of year

time of year!

The urge to explore further beckons...
