Pevsner Perambulation/Walk - St Budeaux (circa 1620)

Ref: C3531151

The walk will start at St Budeaux church, which Pevsner described, and perambulate the green and vicinity of the old church town before heading for the ruins of the Gorges family mansion at Budshead. There may be time to visit the Tamar Crossings exhibition centre at the Tamar Bridge at the end.

Course aim

This guided walk is intended to follow in Pevsner's footsteps in the St Budeaux area and create a perambulation between the church and the ruins of Budshead, a 17C mansion of the Gorges family.
