Just a note before you start- make sure that
your car is securely locked before you leave it.
From the parking space walk the few metres to the end of the road. Cross
priory lane and walk onto the track. Follow this track along, past the
priory and over a cattle grid. Where the path forks follow the right fork,
then cross the boundary at a stile a few metres to the right of the gate.
Walk across this small area and over the stile to the right hand side of the
far boundary. Be careful of nettles at this point. Follow the path across
the small field and uphill (don not take the left-hand path).The path is
signposted, and crosses three fields before reaching the road.
Once you have reached the road, cross over, walk down the road a few
metres, and there should be another footpath on your left. Follow the path
along the left of the field boundary until the end of the field. Turn right,
into another field. The path follows the right-hand field boundary across
two fields. Now follow the path as signposted across the next field to the
far side, with Bawdon Castle farm to your right, and then alongside the
right-hand field boundary. After crossing two field boundaries, take the
right hand path halfway along this field. Walk diagonally across this field,
downhill, to the road.
On reaching Charley Road, turn right (SE) and follow
it until its conclusion. Cross the road, and walk 300-400m until you see
another path on your right.
