Refreshments – The Crown Inn and (soon) No 1 Brownes Way café
Go north along the road that runs alongside the Village Hall behind the Crown Inn. At the end of the road, take the path to the right of the fence down to the Broadheath Rd. Take care crossing the road as sight lines are poor.
Cross both the Broadheath Road and Shoulton Lane, taking the narrow path into the wood. Beware some tree roots along the way. Follow it for some 300 m as it crosses a field and runs behind the village school.
Half way across the field beyond the school turn right through the gap in the fence. Point 1 on Map.
Ignore Oakleigh Road to your left and follow the small access road in front of you to the main road A443 near Ladygo stores.
Point 2 on Map.
Turn right to the crossing in front of the school. Cross the road and take the footpath along the hedge between houses. This emerges onto a green space with new houses. Cross the green to the nature pond. Point 3 on Map.
From the pond, follow the new path diagonally across past the green space with a small play area to your left. Cross the road through the gate and follow the old ‘Pinch’ path between hedges. You pass an information board about ‘The Pinch’ on your left. At the end of the straight path, you meet a path from the left across an open field. Point 4 on the Map.
Turn right and follow a winding track back to the Village Green
Turn angled right along the side of the Green and cross the Main Road with care to return to the Village Hall.

From point 3 on the map, take the path which runs along the hedge on the far side of the pond. This runs south past two large oak trees. Keep straight on where another path runs right across a field. Go through two stile gates and alongside a wooden fence to Church Lane. If you want to visit the old Churchyard, turn left to the end of the road and the Churchyard remains are ahead of you.
Otherwise, turn right onto Church Lane and after 50 m follow the footpath through the stile gate to the left.
A small path takes you down a dip and up to the Church via the Churchyard. Alternatively, as you come out of the dip. Turn left through the metal gate and follow the path to the right across the field to the main road. Turn right and follow the road back to the Green and the Village Hall.
