Mystics and Magicians Cricket Club - Directions to Grounds

M.M.C.C. - They have Pro's, we have Poetry

Bugle C.C.

The Mystics in action at Bugle Bugle is right smack on the A391, so get your maps out and find that. These directions will assume that you are heading south along the A391 from Bodmin. As you come into central Bugle, The Bugle Inn is on your right at some traffic lights. Turn right at these lights, into Roche Road (signed to Roche). Go under the bridge and take the narrow track on the right for about 100 yards. It is probably best to leave minibuses and motorcycles on the road.

Before match, several us will probably be in The Bugle Inn (pub website) (link to Google Map of PL26 8PB).

Pencarrow C.C.

The rain in Pencarrow falls mainly on the Mystics From Bodmin take the A389 towards Wadebridge. You'll pass the Borough Arms pub on your left as you go down hill to the River Camel. Carry on over the old railway line and across the bridge, up the hill and follow the road passing the turning for Camelford (B3266) on your right. Keep heading towards Wadebridge and pass through a small place called Washaway.

Pass a right turn to St Mabyn (three miles) and Camelford (ten and a half miles). About 100 yards later, fork right past Trehellas Hotel and Restaurant. It's also signposted to Croanford (one mile).

Stuart Ellis says that you'll soon start to think that you're lost, but he says that you shouldn't worry. Follow this narrow lane through the woods and Pencarrow Cricket Club should appear on your left just before the crossroads (you'll see two huge oak trees on your right). Be careful when turning in as the gateway is narrow, and newcomers tend to scrape their cars.

From the Wadebridge side, you should head south past The Slades House Country Inn in Sladebrige. After about a mile and a half, take the second left after big right-hand bend, signposted to Croanford (half a mile) and St Mabyn (two miles). Drive half a mile up the road to a crossroads. Turn right, ignore the entrance to Pencarrow House on the left and obey the signs that point right into Pencarrow Cricket Club. Don't park where Chris and Kate parked in 2009.

For pre-match drinkers, the best bet seems to be the Saint Mabyn Inn (PL30 3BA), which is in the centre of Saint Mabyn - follow signs from the A389. To get to the ground from there, follow the Wadebridge Road from the centre of the village (to Wadebridge and Pencarrow on the signpost next to the war memorial). Pass the post office, the church and the school. Pass the village hall, an unpromising-looking crossroads and Mabena Close on the right, and you're out of Saint Mabyn.

After another 400 yards, you get to a crossroads - though you should just follow the road around to the left, ignoring the tiny roads ahead and to the right. 500 yards further along, as the road bends right towards Pencarrow, you need to keep straight on, following the sign to Bodmin. Pass a farm track on the left after 300 yards and the road starts to wiggle as it heads down towards a stream and then back up again. The road straightens and, after 300 yards, leads to a crossroads. Follow the straight on (towards Washaway, 1 mile, and Bodmin, 4 miles) and the entrance to the ground is on your right after 50 yards.

Boconnoc C.C.

Wow Head east (back towards Devon) on the A390 out of Lostwithiel. On the right about a mile out of town (a couple of hundred yards past Saint Winnow School and just about the place where the 40-mph zone ends) is Downend Garage. Turn right there (signposted to Lerryn, 3 miles, and Couch's Mill, 2 miles). Follow the road around to the left at Duchy Timber and less than a mile's drive will bring you to a T-junction. Take the left towards Couch's Mill and Liskeard. After about half a mile, bear right (towards Couch's Mill and Lanreath) at a grassy triangle of a junction. In a bit more than half a mile there's a left turn with a heavy-duty white picket gate across it. Open the gate and go through it, remembering to shut it behind you. The sightscreens should be visible pretty soon as you drive along the road, keeping right where you have a choice.

The pitch is very clear on the Google Map satellite image.

Methigion C.C.

Mystery Scorer This fixture will be played at Reen Manor Park near Perranporth. To get there from Bodmin, head west on the A30 towards Redruth. You'll pass the A39 exit for Truro. Ignore it and keep heading towards Redruth on the A30. Two or three miles past the Truro exit, take a right turn off the A30 on to the B3285 (signposted to Perranporth, Goonhavern, Cubert and St Newlyn East). After two and a bit miles, you'll arrive at Goonhavern and then at a junction with the A3075 (next to Jim's Traditional Barbers Shop).

Turn left towards Redruth, Truro, Perranporth and St Agnes; and then, still in Goohavern, at the double mini roundabout turn right towards Perranporth and St Agnes (still the B3285). After about a mile, there's a left turn indicated by a small white sign on the right for Reen and a larger beige sign on the left for "Reen Manor Riding Stables". Take that turn and then, in a hundred yards, look for the sign that says "Reen Manor Park, home of Perranporth Cricket Club and Goonhavern Football Club" - that's where you're heading.

Before match, some of us might be in The Watering Hole on Perranporth beach (pub website), and others might just be on the beach.

Saint Neot C.C.

Joseph and Fraser at Saint Neot

Saint Neot is about two miles North of the midpoint on the A38 between Bodmin and Liskeard. Your best bet, I reckon, is to head along the A38 and keep an eye out for signposts.

Once you're in the village, you'll see a pub called The London Inn. an alternative option for lunch is the Halfway House, which should be open. It's on the A38, on the left, by the first turn to Saint Neot.

Past the London Inn, there is a church on your left. Just notice it, don't deviate from your course. Then there is a fork in the road. Bear left up the hill (blue sign to "Saint Neot Taverners C.C."). Turn right at the first crossroads (another blue sign to "Saint Neot Taverners C.C."), and drive for about a third of a mile. The entrance to the ground is a gap in the hedge on the left after some farm buildings. There is a small sign in the hedge.

Lanhydrock C.C.

Brian gives Jenna a ride on the roller

Just get close to Bodmin, and there will be signs to Lanhydrock House, a National Trust property just south of the town.

The main entrance to the house has been moved, so if you're just coming for the game you need to use the road we've always used (if you are at the official entrance, you need to turn left and head back towards Tor View). If you're approaching from Tor View, then cross the roundabout on the Lostwithiel Road (B3268) and carry on for another 400 yards or so. Take the wide turn on the right (or left if you're coming from the main entrance), the one that where the cycle route heads away from the road. The ground is on the left after another 400 yards, past the National Trust car park.

Callington C.C.

Callington is at the point where the A390 (Truro to Tavistock) meets the A388 (Plymouth to Launceston). At the roundabout where these two roads meet, head north on the A388 (Saltash Road towards Callington and Launceston). The road bends sharply right after a few hundred yards, past a school (on the left). Turn left after the school on to New Road. Off to the left is the main town-centre car park. Drive through this and park on the ground.

Erratics at Lustleigh

We'll be playing at Lustleigh cricket ground and drinking at The Cleave, TQ13 9TJ. In fact, if you can find the pub, you can find the ground. Which is as it should be.

The A382 runs between Bovey (pronounced Buvvy) Tracey and Moretonhampstead, and Lustleigh is just off that, roughly halfway between the two towns. From the north, take the right turn (Knowle Road) next to a thatched cottage. It's signed to Lustleigh and has a "The Cleave" sign as well. There is an earlier right turn (Caseley), but that has a sign saying that it's unsuitable for wide vehicles. I'd stick with Knowle Road.

It bends sharply to the left and then to the right before coming to a sort of crossroads. Follow the road around to the right and it becomes Brookfield. The field on your left used to be full of Erratic campers most summers, and the cricket ground is just past that. Go over a hump-backed bridge and then follow the road around to the left past Beechnut Lodge. The road narrows as it nears the village centre.

The one-way system takes you around to the left of the church and the pub is on the left. The ground is at the bottom of a narrow, upromising-looking lane next to (on the right of) the pub.

Broadclyst at Killerton House

Olga's arty shot of cricket at Killerton HouseWe will probably meet at The Red Lion in Broadclyst, which is on the left as you head north along the B3181.

From the village of Broadclyst, head north on the B3181 for a couple of miles and turn left before you get to Budlake. Go over the M5 and then take the left into Killerton House. There are brown National Trust signs to help you find the house.

Once you're on the road to the house, keep straight on past the right turn to the National Trust car park). There is beer and cider for sale at the ground.
