Map of walk to Engine Inn 2

 

This is the route favoured by the Reporting Team. As you will see there are a number of alternatives.

Right, I assume that you have managed to find the little road next to Hellesveor Church that takes you up past one side of Rosewall Hill [1 on map].

Propel thyself hence down that road, past Bussow Reservoir and up the hill. About half way up the climb you will come across a junctionlet on your left. You are looking for a public footpath on that side. This is not it.

This is it ..... [2 on map] Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 1
..... and there it isn't. Clearly marked as not being down there. Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 2
Continue further up the road thusly ..... Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 3
..... until you reach this turning on your left [3 on map]

This is where it is ..... quite clearly unmarked as being down there!

Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 4

Time to make like the cows (and the crowd at Woodstock) and take to the grass.

Head down the concrete runway towards the ruined mine and immediately before you reach it ..... Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 5
..... you should spot this little chicane that takes you into the field where resides aforementioned mine. Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 6
Resist the temptation to fall down the mineshaft and head for the bottom right (as you enter the field) corner. Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 7
Then it's a short scramble over the stile ..... Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 8
..... onto the trackway (probably not Iron Age if the tractor tyre marks are any indication!). Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 9
At the end of the track turn right and negotiate this wooden gate. Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 10
Just past the gate you'll see this stile on the left. Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 11
Hop over it and proceed cross-field (aiming generally up and to the left). Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 12
You should come across this marker ..... Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 13
..... and from thence head straight for the top left corner of the field to this stile [4 on map]. Walk from St. Ives to the Engine Inn, Cripplesease 14
