This is the route we took in December 2013.
We parked on School Lane, and walked back to Casewick Lane where we turned left. We followed the road to the estate gates,
From here the lane becomes a public footpath and leads past the house and other buildings.Lady smock flowers?

The path crosses a couple of fields and goes over the railway line. Definitely a case for crossing with care, as the trains pass at over 100 mph. However, the right of way is still there.
Clearly marked paths along field edges lead into Barholm, where we turned right and then left immediately after the church.
The path is clear, over fields and a bridge over Greatford Cut.

At the next junction we turned left, and very soon joined the bridleway to the right.Shortly before the bridleway joins a road our path goes to the left, along field edges, over a footbridge and on for some distance. Eventually it turns right and we walk for a mile or so towards Uffington.
