The main street in Great Hormead has a number of half-timbered thatched houses and a stream running along one side. Hormead Hall was built around 1600. You will also pass The Brick House, which was built earlier still. It is so named because in its time it was unusual for a farmer to have such a home.

We did this walk in late February and enjoyed it. It was firm underfoot, with very little mud despite recent rain. The instructions were excellent and the signposting exemplary. We started the walk at waymark 8, parking at The Three Tuns, which appears to be an excellent pub, though note that it is closed on Mondays. Starting from Great Hormead means you can miss out waymark 1 and go from 11 to 2, but I would recommend Anstey church (so go from waymark 11 to 1 and then on up the hill) before returning to waymark 2. Here we noted that "the clear path uphill" had disappeared, being planted over, but taking the line of the left hand field edge was a good alternative. Thank you for the very fine Guide.

Just like to say, we did this walk last Sunday 03/04/2016 and we really enjoyed it. The walk instructions are very very good and easy to follow The Three Tuns pub in Great Hormead is very nice serving good food and the Landlady and the locals are very friendly
