You may have heard of the legendary field path from St. Ives to Zennor. You may have even been tempted to use it to spare yourself the effort required to negotiate the coast path.
Well, while, being real men/hedgehogs/sheep/flat persons/dragons/snakes etc., we would always want to take the scenic coast path, this time we have relented to bring you coverage of the field path. But first here's a few things that you might want to consider:-
Right, we did it from Zennor to St. Ives so, if you are starting from St. Ives go to the end of this feature and read it backwards.
And that's it. You're out in the fields and on the field path. Now all you have to do is work out where the hell you are supposed to go next!
Unlike the coast path, which mostly consists of a single well-beaten track, the field path rapidly fades out in the great expanse of the Cornish prairies. To add to the confusion, things that do appear to be tracks will usually be the marks left by the movement of cattle, tractors, etc. and, therefore, not actually part of the field path. In a lot of the fields the path crosses walls and hedges via small stiles and not the oh so tempting gates!
