1: Park in the village of Bramfield (location - https://w3w.co/middle.festivity.motion). There are many options along the main road through the village which is called Winding Short. Please check for any parking restrictions. Walk down Bury Lane, which is also Bramfield footpath 7, and head W past The Grandison and then SW for 660m until you reach a gate (location - https://w3w.co/aspect.fleet.woes).

2: Here Bramfield footpath 7 turns left with the hedge on the right and goes round the southern edge of Bramfield Bury Park and then continues heading SW on the left side of Bramfield Park Wood for another 780 until it meets a footpath junction (location - https://w3w.co/bless.sample.toxic).

3: Here you turn right on Bramfield bridleway 3 and head NW, N, and NW again for 1.4km through woodland before climbing the hill through open fields. Once you reach the field the path becomes Tewin bridleway 40 and continues to climb steadily to a road junction with Queen Hoo Lane on the left and Tewin Hill on the right (location - https://w3w.co/scam.ruby.cult).

4: Turn right on Tewin Hill and head NNE for 490m until you reach a T-junction with Winding Short (location - https://w3w.co/yours.foal.bright).

5: Cross the road and head down the track immediately opposite, Bramfield bridleway 1, and head NW through Nicholson's Wood for 460m until you reach a junction in the track (location - https://w3w.co/jolly.crush.tapes).

6: Turn right, still on Bramfield bridleway 1, and head SE for 1.6km, first through Alexander's Wood then bending S through Beanfield Wood and eventually emerging on Winding Short (location - https://w3w.co/sung.canny.chip).

7: Here you can either turn left and walk along the road for 340m to the village, or, if you want to avoid the traffic, look out for a gap in the hedge on your left just before the junction and follows that, walking parallel to the road back to Bramfield Village.
