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 towards Trewedna.
  • 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.
