How to get there
1. From the B3297 Redruth to Helston road, take the right hand turning (if travelling south) signed to Coverack Bridges and follow the road down the hill and over the bridge.
2. Turn right here at the Coverack Bridges sign and follow through the valley until you reach a group of properties on the right with a 'no through road' sign,
3. Take this right hand turning (pretty much straight ahead) and continue until there is a fork and bear left.
4. You will pass 2 bungalows on the left and a cottage on the right. We are about 75 yards on the left.
