Even though we are in the middle of everywhere, Little M can be a little tricky to find. Here are some options to help you track us down:
The nearest station is 3 miles away at Redruth. It is well served by the main line Penzance to London Paddington route. A taxi from the station will cost £15.
We are 3 miles south of Redruth. Put TR16 6NW into sat nav which will get you to The Golden Lion then follow directions from the * in the route below
Alternatively follow our preferred route when coming Southbound on the A30 …
As you enter Cornwall by car, from whichever route, you will find yourself on the A30 heading for Redruth.
A mile after Chiverton Cross (where A30 meets the A390) take the exit be signposted SCORRIER A3047.
Continue straight passing under the railway bridge.
Right at next mini roundabout. (You’ll pass a petrol station (Texaco) on your right after 200m)
Go left at next roundabout onto A393 (The Original Factory Shop is on your left).
Go left at the next roundabout onto Sandy Lane.
Next is a double mini roundabout. Go straight over at 1st then left at 2nd. (You’re still on A393 heading for Falmouth)
Go left at next roundabout.
After 300m take the narrow turning into “Tram Cross Road” (There’s a big circular metal building on your left and a B&B on your right after you turn in here – Take care it is easily missed! If you do take next right and re-join Tram Cross Lane by turning left at T junction)
After about a mile you will come to a T junction – go right.
After another 1/2mile at the T junction go left. (Here you pick up 1st sign for the Golden Lion Inn)
Follow this road without turning and you will reach the Stithians * Reservoir, after crossing the causeway, The Golden Lion Inn will be on your left.
Keep going for another 400m passed the pub
Turn right up an unmade straight lane (2nd right after Golden Lion. What3words: ///surfacing.dimension.breakaway is the start of the lane – you are on the right track if there are farm buildings on left as you go up the hill. NOTE: You have missed the turning if you reach the entrance to Menherion Barton Farm on your right, in which case turn around, head back to Golden Lion and take 1st turning on left)
Follow the track for ½ mile up hill, around an s-bend and back down into a dip.
Look out for lots of planted coloured tyres.
You have reached your destination (what3words: ///relaxed.shapeless.widely)
