Moor End Road

At the top of Moor End Road take the left fork into an unmade lane, after approx. 50 yards, cross over a private road and continue up the lane until it ends at a gate. Climb over the style on your left and follow the hedge on your right.
 
After approx. 100 yards the hedge stops, at this point turn right, and continue to follow the hedge. At the bottom of the field climb the style and head straight across the field, climb the next style and head for the corner of this field passing Parson's Barn on your right.
 
Climb the style and turn left into the lane, walk past Brook farm on your right, and head towards Felmersham. After 300 yards turn left at the barn and follow the marked bridleway, up past the spinney, to the private road at the top.
 
Turn right onto the private road, which at this point is also a bridleway, and continue along the private road/bridleway until you reach the Radwell/Felmersham road.
 
At the road turn left and continue walking until you reach the Swan.
