Walk Instructions

Start Point - HPB Duloe Manor

Leave the Manor by the entrance drive. Turn left to walk along the roadside footpath. Cross the minor road leading to Tredinnick and continue to the war memorial.

1) Turn left; Duloe Church is to the right, followed by the village school. The minor lane makes a good route for walkers; motor traffic is permitted only for access (sign) and there is some grass along the middle of the road. After almost three quarters of a mile more or less on the level, the road begins the plunge down the side of the West Looe Valley and the surface becomes quite rough. There are longer views across the valley. Ignore an apparent track to the right on the way down through woodland.

2) At the bottom join another, similar, track. Turn right, initially rising a little, along the bottom edge of woodland, parallel with the West Looe River, separated by narrow water meadows.

3) Reach Coldrinnick Bridge, a splendid two-arched structure of obvious antiquity, which appears to have lost any previous importance as a crossing of the West Looe River. Cross the bridge to a forestry cleared area. Turn right to follow a forest roadway for almost a mile to Church Bridge, ignoring a left fork. Apart from mud this is a good, easy walking track, never far from the river. (If the mud close to Coldrinnick Bridge appears to be excessive, there is a simple alternative - turn right before the bridge at a 'public bridleway' sign. Cross a little stream and rise sharply to a cleared area. Go straight ahead through the area, ignoring a fork to the right, to follow a forestry roadway, said to be on the line of an old pack horse trail. In approximately half a mile the bridleway dips to the left to cross the river at a ford. Do not be tempted! Continue along the roadway (yellow waymark) to join a public road less than 200m above Church Bridge hamlet and the bridge. Turn left to visit hamlet and bridge; turn right to continue the circuit towards Duloe).

4) Cross Church Bridge to commence the long ascent of the valley side. Go straight ahead at a junction in a short distance. The road is quite narrow between Cornish hedges, rich in plant life in spring and summer; fortunately there is very little traffic. As the road levels, part of Duloe village is visible through a farm gate. Pass Tremadart Farm, for centuries a house and estate of some importance, then modern housing, before joining the main village road.

5) Turn right to walk along the roadside pavement, passing the Plough Inn and the short, signposted, diversion to the stone circle. Rejoin the outward route at point 1 to return to the Manor.
