|Pubs....."The Lamorna Wink" (Lamorna) can be combined with The Merry Maidens, The Pipers, Gun Rith, Boscawen-un.....the pub in St.Buryan is a bit bleak and local, whereas the Wink is not to be missed. Agreed, Zennor pub a beauty.|
If yer going to try a circular walk out across Penwith moors, tread very carefully when following the OS 1:25 000 sheet, a lot of paths and bridleways are completely buried in gorse, unwalked for a generation. Conversely, a lot of 'unofficial' tracks, ( marked as black dashes ) are widely and easily navigable. This is especially true of the moors around Mulfra Quoit, Zennor Quoit, MenScryfa &c. Indeed one of these tracks running along the moorland spine W-E is atrack of great antiquity, 'The Tinners Way'. This runs straight past the Men-an-Tol, Chun Castle & Quoit, &c.
If using St. Just as a base at any point, The Kings Arms & The Star are yr best pubs. There's a passable Indian there,and an interesting cafe-cum-secondhand bookshop just off the main square down Cape Cornwall Street.
Beware that once out in the peninsula, your only shops are in St.Buryan, St. Just, Pendeen & Sennen Cove.......there is very little at all on the rugged northern coast.
Even the most passable footpath is very unlikely to be waymarked, so, sharp up dey map skills, bwoy......
Let us know any other queries....C
