Leaving Penzance westwards by Alverton Road, take the first Left after The Pirate Inn and turn immediately Right.  This leads up to the small Car Park in front of Hope Chapel (SW 461 298).

Leave the CP by a small path to the right of the chapel.  Keep R onto Ropewalk and then turn L onto Alverton Road, keeping on the pavement towards the roundabout.  Just before the R/about a large gate crosses a lane to the L.  Follow the lane for 150ms (SW 457 297).  A small stile in the hedge on the R leads directly onto the side of the A30.

Cross the A30 and, 10ms to the R, set back in the bushes, you will find a set of wooden steps up to a stile.  Cross 2 fields keeping close to the righthand hedge and then follow the track to the lane.

Turn L and after 150ms (SW 451 295) turn R at the signpost to Trewidden and keep to the path between 2 fences as it narrows through woodland.  Cross the stream on the stepping stones and continue up the field straight ahead to reach a stile in the fence below the trees (SW 446 295). Turn L and follow the path to reach the A30 by the end of the drive to Trewidden Garden.

Cross the road very carefully and pass between the gate posts directly opposite following the track straight ahead, then bear L passing between the buildings.  This track leads down towards woodland and a wooden footbridge on the R (SW 451 290).  Cross the stream and turn R, before turning L up a narrow path after about 100ms (SW 451 289). Keep R as the path broadens and winds uphill, entering Tredavoe by a pond on the L.

Cross the green and keep straight up through the village maintaining the same direction  and keeping to the L of a small traffic island. Between 2 cottages, steps lead up to a short tarmac path and a stile leads onto a field.  Keep straight ahead across the field and continue to reach a lane.  This lane leads down to the B3315 (Paul Hill), coming out by the Art School.

Cross into Adit Lane, wending your way steeply down via Belle Vue and Harbour View Terrace and a sharp L to take you to the harbourside.  Turn L and follow the road through Newlyn and over the bridge onto the main road to Penzance.

After 20ms take the second lane on the L, at the end of the shops (462 290), and continue up Treneglos Terrace/West Terrace keeping on in the same direction to the path called Creeping Lane. As it flattens out, and just beyond a field gate, a stile on the left (SW 461 292) and a well walked path take you into a field.  The path keeps to the lefthand hedge and then crosses to the opposite corner.  Cross the stile into woodland and go L following the path as it rises up to the R.  A stile on the L (SW 459 295) goes into a field, follow the hedge and then go through a wide gap and turn left to find a stile in the corner.  A well kept path leads back to Alverton Road. 

Turn R onto Alverton Road, R along Ropewalk and L down the path to rejoin your car.
