Golitha Falls is indeed a very ancient woodland, mentioned in The Domesday Book ordered by King William the Conqueror and published in 1086.
It's a National Nature Reserve, important for its liverwort, lichens and mosses.
To me, it's a well-loved place of beauty, tranquility and peace completed by the sounds of birdsong and the River Fowey as it makes its way from its source on Bodmin Moor to the harbour of Fowey.
The path was a bit tricky here as some of the path had fallen into the river, thanks to the incessant rain of the winter months.
The lichen- and moss-covered trees and rocks are testament to the pure air in this area.
I tried to add a video of Otters playing in the river at Golitha Falls, but the best I can do is the link. It's a YouTube video - if you highlight the link and right-click, you should find on the list a direction to view it.
Otherwise, highlight the link, copy it and open in a new tab.
