Ulysses The Day


Right, so you've left St. Ives (Cornwall not Cambridgeshire, we hope!) and made it to Zennor (almost).

Doddle, wasn't it?

Now, the beer in the Tinner's may be singing its siren song but if you're still feeling heroic there's nothing to stop you plugging your ears and continuing your odyssey. About an hour or so (depending on your ambulatory ability) further along the coast path lies Gurnard's Head; a place with a number of interesting features, not least of which is a pub!

Going for the Gurnard's? Then, you need to turn right here. (Going straight on takes you into Zennor) ... Paths to Zennor or Gurnard's Head 1
... unless, you are coming from Zennor, in which case you need to turn left. Paths to Zennor or Gurnard's Head 2
Don't worry, the path is clearly marked!

(Well, we don't want to make it too easy for you. Where's the fun in that? Bwahahahaha!)

Marker stone for St. Ives or Pendeen.

So, best foot forward, then. Oh, and mind the step!

The first thing you will notice is that the initial stage of the path is a tad precipitous. However, if you are feeling uneasy about this descent, don't worry ..... It's ten times worse when you are coming back (or if you've come from Gurnard's Head)!

Wahey! This should cull the weak-willed and amateur Sunday strollers. Path from Zennor to Gurnard's Head 1
The good news is that steps and handrails are provided .....

..... the bad news is that oxygen cylinders and Sherpas aren't!
