Overview

We head NW following paths, tracks and lanes from Hampstead Norreys, going under A34 to turn SW and pass to the west of Beedon & World's End.  We continue on, skirting the edge of Hermitage before turning N to return to Hampstead Norreys.  The going is generally good, although soft to wet in wooded areas and in one or two fields.  There are 3 stiles in reasonable/good condition and some short sections of boardwalk.  Some stretches of the walk, although not high up, are quite exposed to the elements.
