Starting at the Crooked Billet pub, cross the A30, turn left and take the path before the bridge. Follow the river path until it ends just before the railway.

Cross field and then through a gate into the wood on your left. Follow the woodland path. When you come out, bear left to far corner of the field. At the gate, head straight across and join path which follows a fence to its left. This leads around to an exit near a pylon. Join the road.

At Holt Lane turn right and in 250m you are back at the pub.
