The names of the farms didn`t tie up with anything on my OS map, so in the end I gave up and took a footpath across the moor leading into Trebanos, then down the main road into Porth, which is not an acceptable alternative route....

I recommend using TONPOR2 as an alternative - it's the same as TONPOR1 except that it turns off the main road higher up....

A nice traffic free route, but be aware that it is not well lit so may not be suitable for night time walking, and there are some barriers which may be difficult for wheelchair users to pass through. I have reported these to the local authority so hopefully they will be removed soon....
