National Insect Week returns in 2020

Cornwall Butterfly Conservation Open Day

Saturday, July 4, 2020 - 11:00 to 17:00

Philip (Chairman of Cornwall Butterfly Conservation) and Faith Hambly invite you to their farm at Lethytep, with its wonderful wildlife area with walks, lakes and wildflower meadows.

Visitors are welcome to explore Lethytep for themselves, following the signposted route and a golf buggy is available for use.

There should be many mid-summer butterflies flying and much more besides!

Food, including pasties, are provided, plus tombola and raffle.

To get to Lethytep (SX175588), PL13 2PG, turn south off the A390 Liskeard to Lostwithiel road at East Taphouse, taking the B3359 to Looe and Polperro. After 3.3 miles, take the road to right signposted Penadlake: the event will be signposted from here.
