  • Walk past Lake House on the right.

  • Take the next turning right just before the thatched cottage called Greystones (with a cantilevered porch).

  • Fork right at the bottom of the hill past Hereford Cottage on the left. (In a former life this was the Village bank).

  • Walk up hill (don’t worry it is not this steep all the way up!!)


Option 1

  • At Spynish Lake take a right along the Public Footpath.

  • At the bottom of the drive bare left down a rough path.

  • Go over the stile.

  • Keep to the raised path across the ford (cobbles can be very slippery).

  • Take a sharp right and walk along the road all the way around to the T junction.

  • Take a right and walk past Shippen Barton Cottages on your left.


If you want to dally a while visit our lovely St Michael’s Church through the black wrought iron gates on the left.


Carry on along the raised footpath towards the Village Triangle.   Then stop for refreshments!

Approx distance 2 miles (40 minutes)

You may prefer to walk this route in reverse to avoid going up the very steep hill at Hereford Cottage.



There is a footpath on the left just before the Church, go over the stile and across the field follow the footpath signs. This will bring you to the Ford as in Option 1.
