From the old bridge at Mepal, the walk starts along the bank of the New Bedford River, sometimes known as the Hundred Foot Drain. It turns away from the river and passes through Mepal Gault Hole, a nature reserve. From there back through the southern edge of Mepal and on to pass a fairly modest-looking industrial unit, which in fact is the world's largest straw-fired power station. From there, past a tree plantation and along a minor road, the walk reaches the village of Witcham. There then follows a beautiful stretch of tree-lined byway, and a footpath running along the bank of a drainage dyke back to the New Bedford River. A walk along the bank brings us back to the start, and the Three Pickerels public house.
