We set off from Glaston Road, by the maze in Wing, crossed Morcott Road and took the first on the left, which is a bridle way. This took us downhill and north over the railway line and the river Chater, then uphill to the main road. We crossed this and took the small road past the campsite towards the Manton Visitor Centre.
From there we turned right along the waterside track, and continued as far as the Sailing Club. Here we took the road past the school, up towards Manton Road, turning right along the path near the houses. We took a brief break in the bus shelter before following the road as far as the left turn towards Lyndon. We walked down this minor road to the village, turning right, then left and taking a footpath to the right which leads past Lyndon Hall. The church is just visible behind this, to our right. The path takes a zig zag route along field edges, then joins the bridleway near the Chater. It just remained to walk uphill to the railway line and back into the village of Wing.
