Kind Hart-ed!


OK then, here's the deal. The angel said we should turn left at Ludgvan church and we're nearing Ludgvan now. So, Mr. Angel, it's time to put up or shut up.

A short way down the road you will find this letterbox. (20 on Map)

Which is handy if you've got some postcards to send off and also marks the next turn.

Hang a right at the letterbox and head down here. Route of St. Michael's Way, Penwith, Cornwall 125
Follow the path down to the meadow.

At the bottom of the meadow, hurdle the stile and follow the path up through the wood. Route of St. Michael's Way, Penwith, Cornwall 127

So far, so bad.

Hey, how about a bit of divine inspiration?

So, we emerge from the woods and head up this path ..... Route of St. Michael's Way, Penwith, Cornwall 128
..... and, lo!, some sort of edifice appears ..... Route of St. Michael's Way, Penwith, Cornwall 129
..... call me a boring traditionalist but I just can't help suspecting that this could be a church .....

..... and it's in Ludgvan (pronounced 'ludge van') ..... (21 on Map)

Now, I'm sure there's something I need to remember at this point .....

Meanwhile, back to the plot.

At this point St. Michael's Way forks. You can either go left, which takes you through Crowlas (pronounced like it looks except the 'crow' should rhyme with 'cow') and over Marazion (pronounced 'marrer zyne, to rhyme with 'pine'), or right, which takes you through Gulval and onto the Penzance causeway.

Acting on an inexplicable hunch .....

..... we turn left and .....

Hm, it's a pub ..... but we've passed by pubs already.

[You see the sacrifices we make on your behalf.]

I'm not sure Richard II ever came down this neck of the woods but maybe it's worth investigating.

After all, the angel said .....

It certainly has the desired olde worlde pub feel about it and all we need to know now is what they serve. Route of St. Michael's Way, Penwith, Cornwall 135
Real ale? You've got Flowers IPA? Off the wood? Route of St. Michael's Way, Penwith, Cornwall 136

"Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the lord

He's brought in casks of real ale and he's put them on the board

This is an opportunity that can not be ignored

And his beer goes marching on!"

No wonder the pilgrims progressed this far. It might also explain why they couldn't walk straight.

Real ale off the wood certainly sorts the men from the boys. OK, Sonic and Shaun, it's your round.
