for a printable copy of this page
Start point - At the end of Crabtree Lane reached via Mutton Lane or Wood Lane
At the point at which Crabtree Lane finishes, continue along the double track to the end where the path heads diagonally across field, over a small "trip trap" bridge and to Tong's Wood.
The path skirts the north side of the wood and across the field to Beckingham Wood in the distance. It was along this stretch that a pair of Buzzards were spotted circling overhead. Head to Beckingham Wood and keeping to the south side to a little wooden bridge that goes through the hedge. Continue along the path, still keeping by the wood and head towards Clayworth Woodhouse Farm on the horizon.
The footpath goes around the farm (not through) from stile to stile and leads into ....
Footpath 12 which goes round the north side of Clayworth Woodhouse Farm and via the roadway, through Beckingham Wood and by Wood Farm on your left. The road eventually leads on to Wood Lane.
