LIFE OUTSIDE WORK: Sports
Sports were also a major form of leisure pursuits in the area with Cornish Wrestling and Tug o’ War proving popular. Unlike elsewhere in Cornwall, football as opposed to rugby always seems to have dominated field sports. There was a great deal of pride and competition around sports activities in the Clay Country.
Leisure pursuits in more recent times include walking and cycling along the newly opened Clay Trails: see www.claytrails.co.uk
