Starting at Golberdon Crossroads PL17 7ND Trewoodloe, Lansugle, Kerney Bridge, Tregonnet 3 miles Loop.
At the crossroads, walk pass by the hall and play area coming out through a pedestrian gate onto the main road. Take care crossing and enter “THE SQUARE” where the pub used to be, many years ago at Honeysuckle cottage, with the blue shutters. Back lane was once a busy thoroughfare with one of the blacksmiths here and leads out past the old Post Office and shop, again closed many years ago. Keep right and follow beside Moorland View houses and a short path onto Trewoodloe Lane. Turn left.
Follow this past a large shed on the right, Trewoodloe Castle on the left and then spot the granite steps on the right, at the entrance to Trewoodloe Farm House. Climb the steps and stile into the field and head for the top left hand corner, over a stone hedge stile. From here aim straight ahead towards the left hand power pole. Take in the views. To your right Kit Hill and left Caradon Mast, Cheesering & Sharp Tor. Once you’re close to the power pole you’ll spot the stile straight ahead bringing you down into Lansugle Road.
Turn left. Follow this quiet road past Lansugle Farm and down the hill. Turn left, this road will bring you to Wagmuggle on the corner. Alongside the cottage, a path leads down to a stream and is a footpath leading to Browda… another day!
Continue on the road, you’ll be following along by the leat leading to Berrio Mill. On the left is a well and a footpath sign leading through Berrio Farm, again another walk for another day.
You’ll also pass an old quarry on your left and eventually you’ll come to Kerney Bridge and the main Golberdon to Pensilva Road. Take care crossing the road. (you don’t go over the bridge) Where the Water Works are now, used to be a saw mill with Garrets Traction Engines. Follow the signpost alongside the fence and over a small stile into the woods. Keep straight on, the river Lynher is on your right. Follow the well worn path, keeping your eyes open for SOUTH HILL painted ROCKS. Use the hand rail by the granite steps, down to the tyre swing.
Keep along by the river, there’s a popular area to stop and enjoy the surroundings, The Parish Council have plans to place a bench here.
The footpath brings you to a field gate with a stile alongside. Continue over this into a quiet road. If you turn right you’ll come to Bicton Bridge and the Old Mill with disused water wheel.
OPTIONS: From here you could come back over the bridge and go up the steep hill to PENWARDEN but for this walk….
from the stile turn left and continued up the hill to the farm (with dog) at Tregonnet. Pass the buildings on the right and old milking parlor with the interesting stone lintel, then pass the new farm house.
On the corner, where the large shed is, was where some local farmers used to bring their sheep to use Mr Gorman’s plunge sheep dip. Not all farms had a dip and it was required to dip every year to protect sheep from parasites such as Fly Strike.
Admire the views here to Caradon Mast, Cheesering and Sharpe Tor. Opposite you’re looking across into Trewoodloe Farm, with Egypt below.
Continuing on will bring you into Golberdon village passing the old chapel on your left. Keep right and turn right by the footpath sign thru the pedestrian gate back into the Recreation Field and play area and the hall, where you started.
