Starting from Southfield Road, Wetwang, we meander in a Southerly direction until Thorndale Lane then after 'Concrete Corner' continue up Thorn Dale until the junction with Green Lane near Beadygraves. After following the ancient route of Green Lane in an Easterly direction we cross the B1248 and continue along Cadger Castle until just beyond Little Grange when the route turns Northwards to the A166. After the road crossing the Northward tramp continues past Westfield Farm to Green Lane. Turning in a Westerly direction, briefly, there is then a turn South to Wetwang Grange then West to Station Farm and, after a couple more direction changes, back to Wetwang. 

Due to the potentially slippery surfaces in parts walking poles are recommended, as are gaiters. There are no local toilet facilities or sources of food and drink that will be open at the start time.

No dogs please, apart from Registered Assistance Dogs.
