Walk description:

20 minutes route walking at an adults pace/30-45 minutes route walking with toddlers

Play park part way round and a recreation ground part way round as well

1. Start at Barwick and Stoford County Primary School, cross the road just outside the school and walk along Bridle Way. Follow the pavement along the road and round the corner. After you have turned the corner in the road you will be heading up hill and will pass the play area on your left. Continue up the road until you meet Fairhouse Road.
2. At Fairhouse Road turn left and cross Bridle Way to walk along Fairhouse Road. After a short distance Higher Bullen will be the road on the opposite side of Fairhouse Road from you. Turn right and cross Fairhouse Road and continue ahead along Higher Bullen for a short distance until you reach the alley way on your left. Clifton View will be on you right on the other side of the road where the entrance to the alleyway is.
3. Turn left and take the alleyway. It will bring you out in a parking area, turn right and continue ahead until you reach Whitecross. Take the pavement on your left and follow around a corner to your left and you will pass the recreation area on your right.
4. At the end of Whitecross, you will be back at Fairhouse Road, cross over the road and turn right following the pavement until you reach a footpath going off to you left just before Court Lane. Don’t take the footpath but cross Court Lane and take the footpath ahead of you on the other side of the road.
5. Follow this footpath initially up hill and the downhill as it follows Court Lane. The footpath will bring you back down to the road. At his point take care, as there is not a pavement for the remaining short distance back to the school. Turn right and carefully walk along the end of the road back to the school.
