This leaves Newlyn on the only path we have found that does not require you to climb a cliff.  The route is about 4 miles long depending on where you live and takes in the villages of Tredavoe and Paul mainly following tracks and bridleways.

Make your way to Newlyn SW 462 290 and walk up the Coombe on the road that takes you to the A30 taking care to avoid the traffic, particularly around the bends by the football ground.

When you are passing Stable Hobba the road bends quite sharply to the right SW 454 292 – go straight on up a track that becomes a path that wends its way up the wooded valley to the village of Tredavoe.

Make your way through the village keeping to the right and following a sign to the Chapel at SW 454 286.  Keep to the left behind the chapel at SW 453 285 and follow the path to Chyenhal which is signposted ¼ mile.

You are following an ancient track – keep straight past the path to the left and slightly left when there is a path to the right at SW 452 283.  At the end of the track there is a small open area SW 452 281 – go over a stile you will see on the right where the farmer has put up a notice warning against dogs running free.  The path swings around to the left across a couple of fields to a gate SW 450 280.  Go straight on at this point down a well-used path to the road at Chyenhal.

Turn left along the road and, when the road bends sharply to the left at SW 450 278, keep straight on up the track.  Keep straight on again when you get to the road to Kerris and the track will bring you out at the road to Sheffield SW 457 270.

Turn right towards Sheffield and after about 100 yards, at SW 457 269, turn left down a narrow track.  After 100 yards at SW 460 268 turn left down a path which takes you past the cricket club to Paul.

Have a wander around Paul and when you are ready, head out of the village on the road towards Newlyn and at SW 463 273 take the footpath on the right.  This leads to a new path recently created by Cornwall Council (thank you very much) that is still not waymarked, but can be identified by new fence posts.  Follow this to Gwavas Lane at SW 464 277 where you turn right before heading down hill into Newlyn itself and back home.
