You can park your vehicle in the car park adjacent to The Burrow. Start from just outside The Burrow facing the cricket pitch in front of you and turn right along the road and head slightly up the incline to the road junction.
At the junction turn right going past the Gardens Tea House and Estate Office. Passing the second set of buildings on your left, the surface changes from tarmac road to red shale paths. You shortly enter a woodland which has recently been replanted after it was felled. In spring the sides of this path are lined with Bluebells.
You soon reach a crossroads of red shale paths, head straight on and take the next right approximately 20 metres after the junction. The ground is slightly uneven here with a ridge across the path. Continue along this track with a copse of large mature beech trees on your left.
Running down the hill after 250 meters is a dirt path to your right take this turn then turn immediately right, you have now reached the midway point of the run.
Next to the grass field the path splits into two, take the left path as it runs adjacent to the field.
The next turn is at the end of the fenceline and turn left here on your right is two stone pillars. You will now have 2 grass fields on each side of you and a stone archway in front of you. This section of the route is also part of our cycle path network, so keep an eye out for bikes. With the stone archway in front of you, turn right just before you reach it with the field on your right.
As you progress along this section you will see Cedar Avenue in the distance. You will pass along the bottom of this, a quick glance to the right will see the avenue leading up to the Walled Kitchen Garden. Reaching the tarmac road turn right to go up the hill and then you will reach your starting point.
