Plenty of parking at the Village Hall next to the recreation ground.

Several poo bins by Village Hall and playground at the start of the walk.

Local Features

About My Walk

If you walk up Muntham Drive up the hill from the village hall car park, follow the road going past the school entrance on your right. A short way along there's a narrow footpath going downhill on your left, head down here and it leads you through a gate into a field. The path goes straight through this field, and the round the outer edges to your right before crossing through a kissing gate into a small woodland. This field was very bumpy when I went and the footpath itself was not easy to see but directions are signposted fairly well. Through the kissing gate and the path leads over a stream, up a hill and then rejoins Muntham Drive.

Head left again, and you walk up the road through some farm cottages and follow the signs left. After a while you'll see the footpath sign left again which seems incorrect as goes through a private property, but there is a little gate next to the drive and if got through, and right at the black barn you'll see where the path leads off ahead of you. this takes you through another field and small woodland, and into a grazing field so watch out for cows and sheep here. Head right over the stile and keep close to the fence and the path leads back into some woodlands. This then opens out on to some great open grass fields, eventually going past the rugby pitch. Over the stile at the far end of the rugby pitch turn right back towards the school along the path. Just before the entrance to the school there's a path to the left, take this and this essentially takes you all the way back.

Before you get to the end there is a left turn and you can cross the playing fields here back to the car park. Just on your left as you enter the playing fields is Julia and Emma's Arboretum which is very pretty place to finish the walk and there's a couple of benches too.

A really nice walk, very quiet and with great variation. Hank's got a habit of running off right now which we're working on so whilst I didn't know the area at all I kept him on the lead for most of it, but if I went back again there are several areas I'd be happy to take the lead off. There are farms about which aren't always fenced securely, but only one field where we went through which there were actually any farm animals. Any roads are very quiet country roads and not for great duration. A very friendly area too, a couple of people stopped to chat and help me get my bearings!
