1: From The Lordship Arms in Burn’s Green (location - https://w3w.co/dolls.deflation.writing) head WSW along Burn’s Green for 170m to the point where the road becomes Benington restricted byway 39 (location - https://w3w.co/loudness.lived.given). Follow the byway as it weaves SW, ignoring a footpath going off to your left.

2: After 1km you reach High Elms Lane (location - https://w3w.co/shack.sneezing.stretcher). Cross the lane and continue heading SW now on Benington bridleway 37. After 110m keep left at a junction (location - https://w3w.co/submitted.guessing.meanwhile) and head SE on Benington bridleway 38 which becomes Watton-At-Stone bridleway 5.

3: After 500m you reach Gregory's Farm (the views behind you just before you reach the farm are spectacular). Follow the bridleway through the farm (location - https://w3w.co/value.snowboard.pining). At the end of the farm lane turn left on Watton-At-Stone bridleway 2 and continue walking E, then NE alongside Loefield Grove.

4: After 600m the path splits (location - https://w3w.co/permit.tricky.lavished). You take the left fork, Watton-At-Stone footpath 1, and continue heading NE.

5: When you reach Whemstead Road (location - https://w3w.co/gems.liner.rejoiced) turn right and head SSE for 50m looking out for Watton-At-Stone footpath 3 on your left (location - https://w3w.co/hounded.converter.shine) which heads through Comb’s Wood and Customs Wood. There are two paths heading into the woods, take the right-hand one.

6: At the end of the woods take the footpath on the right, Little Munden footpath 12 (location - https://w3w.co/solving.cello.weds), and follow it as it heads E, NE, and then E again through Banfield Wood, eventually reaching a bridleway just beyond Munden Parva (location - https://w3w.co/survey.zaps.bands).

7: Turn left on Little Munden bridleway 7, and head NW past Graves Wood on your right. Continue for 1.2km until you reach a bridleway junction (location - https://w3w.co/pampering.fizzy.casino).

8: Turn left here on Benington bridleway 25 and continue heading SW for 980m back to Burn’s Green.
