Turn left out of the Rowing Club and run along the left-hand side of the canoe lake as far as the roundabout. Cross the main road carefully and take West Hill Road, staying on the right-hand pavement.
Take the second right down Park Road, at the bottom of the hill turn left into St John’s Wood Road and run all the way to the end.
Turn left and go up St Johns Hill, crossing over, then take the first right into High Street (1 mile), which becomes Cross Street.
At the end of Cross Street turn right into Slade Road, keep following it when it turns into a footpath that runs alongside the railway.
On reaching Smallbrook Lane and taking great care turn right onto the road and cross to the Left hand side when able, head towards Smallbrook stadium.
About 150m before the Smallbrook mini-roundabout and just after the builders yard (2 mile), turn left down the footpath that goes around the back of the Smallbrook stadium. (footpath may be overgrown! If it is, carry on up the road then left at the mini-roundabout)
Run along the back of the Smallbrook stadium building into the main carpark, take the foot path opposite (by the skip & mobile home), then left onto Ashey Road.
Take the first left off Ashey Road down a track that then crosses the railway, at the top of the field after the crossing turn right and run down to a farm yard.
On exiting the farm yard turn left and follow the foot path up hill and alongside the woods (3 mile). After going through the gate at the top of the hill, go straight and after 100 metres turn left through the first gate and head across the field towards the woods.
Enter the woods over the stile and follow the path. When you emerge from the woods head straight across the field towards a house where you see a couple of footpath gates in quick succession which put you on Harding Shute road.
Turn left and follow the road over the railway bridge and end up at the junction with Beaper Shute, cross Beaper Shute carefully, and take at Bullen Road directly opposite, keep on the road and follow it around to the left when it becomes a gravel track (4 mile), then take the footpath to the left around the side of the golf course.
When the footpath comes out onto the main road just before Tescos, turn right staying on the verge on the right-hand side.
Straight on at the Westridge Cross traffic lights and down Malborough Road (5 mile), and carry on to the end of the road.
Cross over Appley Road and go down Appley Lane to the bottom and finish outside the Club.
