This is a unique combination of woodland and coast, in a little known venue, well worth discovering. Please note I don’t teach mushrooms and fungi.

Level of Walk: Approximately 2-3 miles, includes stile, may be muddy, relatively flat with some gradients.
Meeting Point: Meet at the road entrance to St Loy woods. Postcode: TR19 6DJ
Directions: Take the A30 to Penzance, from Penzance head along the seafront towards Newlyn continuing up the large hill ahead of you (B3315). Staying on this road for 5 miles, follow directions for Lamorna. Ingore the turning for Lamorna Cove, and continue another 2 miles (approx) past the Merry Maidens stone circle on your left. The road will eventually dip down, passing 2 strips of woodland on your left, the second is marked with a footpath sign, and is our meeting point. If you pass Trevedran House, you’ve gone a little too far… (though see parking notes below).
Parking: You may be able to park along the road side, otherwise, just past Trevarden House there is a field* marked for parking on the left. Parking is £2 donation. I suggest you park facing towards the gate if it’s muddy!
Transport: Not very accessible by public transport, let me know if you need a lift.
