When finished go through the beer garden in the Bell and out of the back gate turning left along the path. Aldworth recreation ground will be on your right. Continue out into the fields passing through a gate and another field. Turn left when you get to the track and continue along. When you get to a footpath sign turn right through a kissing gate and descend down a hill via a track. Go through the gap at the end of the field and you will see Kiddington Cottage away in the distance. Skirt round the field to the right and continue along until you get to a gate which you should go through. This will take you out onto a track, and You will pass Kiddington Cottage on your left at C. Continue along the track and there will be field on both sides. Eventually you will get to a hedged area where there will be a gap for a footpath- go through this. Follow the path along and it will eventually widen to become a track. Follow this out onto the road at point D. Turn left and continue back to the car park at Warren Farm.
Notes New Year's Day is always a great time to blow out the cobwebs on this walk with the Bell often being very lively!
