From Parwich the path runs almost in a straight line, initially following a small brook. This is left behind and the route goes on to the small village of Bradbourne with its attractive small church. The ground is undulating along the route as we drop gradually down to Ballidon. This is just a small collection of houses and a farm. The main interest is in the old Norman chapel and the platform foundations of the medieval village.
Continuing on by Ballidon Quarry, the path passes along an attractive dale to turn left along a side dale. This leads onto a quiet lane, then onto a long straight lane before turning off to skirt halfway up Parwich Hill and back to the village. The views along the way are quite extensive in all directions, giving a walk that is a brief respite from the hurly-burly of the fast-moving modern world.
