Got it!
Not far off Castle Hill.

I'll try it out next time I'm in that direction.

I was in St Mawes a few short weeks ago doing my Parish Churches thing. Getting up to St Mawes Parish Church was very very steep, and I couldn't get right up there on Moulton even with a 16" bottom gear. The front end was lifting. I had to walk up Church Hill to the church. There's no room on the map to put any chevrons as it's only 100yds or so from the coast road. 20odd degrees is easily correct for it.

You can see the parish church. It's one of the few in Cornwall with a spire.Screen Shot 2019-04-20 at 11.23.12.png

I had to get off on the bend by the parked cars, as the hill starts to bite there.

And going round behind the church it's just insane!
