From Rectory Farm we head across farmland to the coast path where we turn left to follow the coast. After a few hundred metres you can make a small detour down the cliff to the famous Hawker's Hut, built by the Reverend Hawker out of driftwood, where he used to watch out for shipwrecks so that he could ensure the victims received a decent Christian burial. After several kilometres of superb scenery we head inland again, by quiet country lane then peaceful Cornish farmland, to the shade of Tidna Wood and Valley. Climbing up again we soon arrive at the Bush Inn for refreshments, or continue along another lane for a short distance back to our start point.

Hawker's Hut, which you will pass in section 3 is in excellent original order and still has a good roof. It's location is well marked alongside the coastal path and it's only a few meter's lower down. Although there is no information at the site, it is now maintained by the National Trust and even has a visitor's book in the form of a notepad!
