Similar to this walk, but with two small variations.
From Exton we took New Field Road, which goes over a cattle grid and becomes a track, heading east. It bends slightly to the left and comes to a junction of three paths. We took the mud track which goes straight ahead and it took us to the metalled track between Lower Lake and Fort Henry Lake.

Down the steps on the other side, following the signs to Greetham, past the bird hide and bug hotel - there were only a few tits today. Then we followed the path beside the golf course, and called in at the bar for a welcome coffee. The staff were very welcoming too.
