Leaving Byfield along the main road, the route soon takes a hard track that joins a bridleway in fields high above the valley that slopes away to the left. The little settlement of West Farndon is a joy to walk through, the few houses and cottages pretty and appealing in their rural setting.

Meadows and pastures follow on the way to Woodford Halse, a large village with good shops and interesting, old buildings. After exploring the long main street, the walk reverses its direction to walk into Hinton, a short distance from Woodford, on the other side of the railway bridge. Again, the buildings are old, some of an unusual nature that pertain to the days when the working railway influenced the wealth of the village.

The rest of the walk is on footpaths across fields towards Byfield, the scenes rural and open, with distant views over Northamptonshire farmland. The Church of the Holy Cross in Byfield, sitting high on a bank, is a fine architectural delight and the last point of interest at the end of this walk.
