Turn right onto the road, go downhill and cross a stream F; continue uphill past Mawla chapel. Mawla is actually a very early area of settlement, although almost nothing remains to be seen, many ancient artifacts have been found which now rest in the museum in Truro. These include Iron Age worked stones, a quernstone, fragments of stone vessels, a drilled shaped stone and also spindle whorls of unknown date. Nearby there was a flint-working site and early maps show several Bronze Age barrows in the vicinity of Mawla Chapel H. The current Chapel was built H in 1908 and opened just a year later, much of the work being done by the local congregation I and J. It replaced a smaller earlier chapel located on the right, just a few metres up the hill on the opposite side of the road, where the Sunday school was then based K. Mawla at one time was a much more wooded area but suffered heavily when Dutch Elm disease swept through the United Kingdom.
Continue up the hill and ignoring the road junction on the left, at a right hand bend take the track on the left. After about 50 metres, just before a bend in the track, take the stile on the right, this is set into the hedge and easily missed but is indicated by a small arrow on a post. Descend through woodland observing the adit on the right at the bottom L. This used to drain the Stencoose and Mawla United mines, which again had flooding problems, having an engine that was too small to cope with the water. There are stepping-stones across the small rill from the adit and a plank bridge over the adjacent stream. Cross the road and go up the road opposite, this hamlet is called Manor Parsley.
Continue up the hill past the bungalows on the right; look for a bungalow on the right with an interwoven fence atop a stone wall, opposite 'Little Oaks.' There is a track to the right here M, one can take this track and shorten the walk by 3/4 mile - also this is an advisable route in wet weather conditions for those without stout boots, as the longer route can be muddy.
