Sir Arthur was noted for his compilation of The Oxford Book of English Verse and was a Cornish poet, novelist and anthologist who lived in Fowey from 1891-1944. Under his pseudonym ‘Q” he wrote Dead Man’s Rock in 1887 which was one of several novels about Cornwall and the sea.
The walk provides ample opportunity to admire the views that inspired him to write so passionately about Cornwall. The walk is peppered with benches that look out over Fowey and, it also takes you through woodland that provides shade and shelter on sunny or windy days.
