Route & Question Sheet
SPARE CLUES are in the order they appear
All visible from the car park at the front of the pub
Cross the grass to the left of the pub to the wooden gate on the other side. Through gate and straight on (around fallen tree) to gate at far side. Then turn right keeping to pavement (not bridleway). At far end of road go forward to steel barrier where stage ends.
Go straight ahead through wood. If there is a fallen tree across path go round it but still straight ahead. Soon path narrows through brambles and finally comes out on broader path to 4-way signpost where turn right on to footpath through bottom of valley. Follow this footpath (not bridleway) for a long way. Stage ends at post with arrows off to right hand side of path.
Return to main path and continue on along valley until a post where the path you are on and the bridleway join, where stage ends.
Carry on along path until you meet rough road, where turn right and go up long hill. At top of hill keep on road and stage ends at concrete plinth at roadside.
Carry on, then turn right at first road. Straight on, later passing in front of houses and with playground on right. Continue in front of houses and turn left at end. When you reach road, cross over and turn right. Then cross the road again and through a gap in palings. Stage ends short way into wood.
Keep to main path and when you come out into open turn left on broad path and after 30 yards turn right into wood. Stay on this path for a long way, ignoring side turnings. Shortly after coming out into the open turn right to a post where stage ends.
Reaching post, turn left and go to right hand side of trees, following broad path towards notice board in distance, later forking right to reach it. At road turn left and follow it back to pub.
