Scene But Not Herd

And that's it, really.

I warned you it was dull. Functional, provided you don't get lost it should nearly halve the time to St. Ives compared to the coast path, but dull, dull, dull.

I first walked part of the field path with my mate Rod who does guided walks. The plan was to walk the coast path to Seal Island and then cut inland and loop back to St. Ives via the field path. The only problem was that neither of us could think of anything remotely interesting to say about the second half of the trip!

Hell, a lot of the time you don't even get a good view as the hedgerows and field walls ten to box you in.

Don't get me wrong. The field path is OK if you can't hack the coast path and there is the occasional point of interest:-

Sadly, due to the 'drectly' phenomenon St. Ives' megalithic circle remains somewhat less complete than Stonehenge! The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 29

[* Technically speaking this is not actually true. At all. But what the hell, you've got to try to find some way of keeping your mind occupied when you're tramping through your umpteenth field!]
