- Leave the car park and turn right along the main road. After approximately 30m turn right through a gap in a wall and follow the public footpath along the edge of the playing field. At the corner of the playing field go over a stile, and continue on in the same direction with the hedge now on your right.
- At the end of the field go through two gates, crossing a track which was once the Honington railway line, and then bear diagonally left across the field towards a telegraph pole and way marker post.
- Bear right across the field to a waymarker post to the left of an old oak tree. Turn left and walk beside the old hedge to another waymarker post close to the corner of the substation fence. Turn right along the bridleway beside the fence to a gate and road. Turn left on to North Heath Lane. Walk along the lane to the junction with the A607, crossing the disused railway line again.
- Cross the main road with extreme care and go through the gate opposite. Bear diagonally left towards the houses, reaching another gate and tarmac road. Turn right after 100m and walk down the road to the bottom of the hill.
- Bear left at the bottom of the hill along Bulby Lane. At the crossroads turn left to go up Rectory Lane. Continue straight on, passing the Hare and Hounds pub, until you reach the main road and the car park.
