A LOCAL WALK - Pulla Cross - Frogpool - Bargus Farm
2.5 miles, approx. 1hr.
Start at the Playing Field, Pulla Cross (Parking and
toilets). Leave the Playing Field by the bottom pedestrian
gate. Turn left and follow the lane past the two stiles
then take the first track on the right.
After 200 metres turn right, following the tarmac lane to
the next junction. Turn right and then bear right up past
the Cornish Arms to the Chapel crossroads.
Straight across, keep the cemetery on your right, past the
Abbatoir. At the next junction turn left down the hill
Take the second ‘public footpath’ sign on the left, the
tarmac lane will loop around “The White Cottage” – note
the yellow footpath makers). We have strayed into
Perranarworthal Parish now, but they won’t mind! Behind
‘The White Cottage’ you are now faced with three farm gates
close to each other, take the stone stile on the right into
a field and keep to the field hedge on your right hand side.
Over the next stile by the farm gate, keeping to the left
hedge before climbing another stile into a lane. Open (and
Close!) the gate taking you into and through Bargus Farmyard,
bear left up the tarmac lane until it meets the main road
(phew, back in Gwennap Parish again!).
Straight on for 20 metres, then take the footpath signed on
your right past a small farm. Turn left when it meets the
road, down the hill towards the Cornish Arms.
Bear right at the Pub, then left after the farm. Left again
almost immediately, taking the footpath (signposted) alongside
the end of the farm buildings.
Keep to the right as you negotiate the stiles through three
fields. At the junction with the lane, turn left and the
Playing Field is 200 metres on your right.
