Take Me Home Crunchy Roads


Nearly home now.

Not much left to report but, as mentioned earlier, it can be quite easy to lose the path and/or fail to locate it, so here are a few more visual clues as the Reporting Team yomp over the last crest and greet beloved St. Ives.

You occasionally end up (usually briefly) on a back road and the path also has several branches so there is more than one route you can take. The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 30
F'rinstance, you can get off aforementioned road by heading down here. The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 31
But be warned, some of the fields are quite spectacularly featureless and you may have to spend a bit of time wandering around them trying to find the next exit ..... The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 32
.....because they really are quite obscure at times ..... The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 33
..... difficult to make out from a distance ..... The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 34
..... or just well camouflaged. The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 35

You DID remember to bring a map, didn't you?

Although, you are in no danger of dying in the wilderness you will find it a damn sight easier to work out where your next staging point should be if you've got a map that shows the course of the path(s). (I know the OS map does).

Perversely, the last (or first) bit of the field path is one of the hardest to successfully locate and navigate.

Hoorah! At last we've got enough room to see where we are heading. St. Ives Bay and Godrevy loom on the horizon. The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 36
But the path just seems to be coming to a dead end.

The first time we did this much headless chicken wandering ensued at this point. We knew where we wanted to go but were stumped as to how you got to it!

The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 37
There is a very narrow path there, though, but you will have to fight off the gorse bushes to get through. The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 38
What do you mean you didn't pack a machete? The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 39
At last (or first) you follow the very narrow and overgrown track down on to the end of Burthallan Lane. The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 40
If you are starting from St. Ives this is the sign you need to look out for. The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 41
This is Burthallan Lane (see Map Section). The Garrack Hotel lurks down the right fork (you go left to get to the start of the field path) so you can locate the road by following the signs for the Garrack. The field path from St. Ives to Zennor 42

Got all that?

Right, whose round is it then?
