Footpath walk - Gwennap Church Circular.

2.5 miles approx. Just over one hour.

A short circular stroll starting and finishing at Gwennap Church, quite a bit on roads, so be careful.

  • (1). START from Gwennap Church car park head straight up the road towards Comford (the river will be on your right).
  • (2). Turn RIGHT after 200 metres up the lane marked "public footpath". Continue this uphill path, skirting the right-hand side of the field, then a stone lane. Eventually you join a wider lane/drive, keep going UP.
  • (3). WARNING! Busy road. Bear right, then immediately LEFT on to the quieter unclassified road to Trevarth. At Trevarth, RIGHT on the road towards Carharrack.
  • (4). RIGHT at property "Greenacres", down track with wooden post in the centre.
  • (5). When the track meets the road (very busy), STRAIGHT ACROSS, down path immediately opposite.
  • (6). At the bottom of this path, RIGHT at the pumping station with the green fencing. You will have the fencing on your left-hand side as you head down the bridleway that skirts the Landfill Site.
  • (7). This eventually comes out on the Sunny Corner Gwennap road, turn RIGHT and follow the road back to the Church car park.
