Really enjoyed this walk,lots of variety,only a couple of paths are overgrown.Highly recommended. A few updates,which are, At waymark 1,you turn down the 1st road on the left,there isn't a signpost saying Boxford 2,that's the 2nd road on the left,don't take that one. At waymark 11,there is no tall wire fence,just bushes on the left and a ditch on the right. At waymark 21,the highland cattle have been replaced with bulls,luckily the footpath passes along side this field.All the stiles are badly broken.After the 3rd broken stile,you arrive at a farmers field full of crops,take the barely visible path straight ahead.When you reach the road by cox farm,the stile has gone,you have to climb over a small locked gate.

Picked up this walk at point 11 as staying at "The White Horse", Edwardstone. Needed to shorten the walk, therefore turned left at point 18 away from Boxford towards "Fox and Hounds" at Groton. On leaving Pub turned left again and joined footpath heading east and then north west via Groton Place, reconnecting with main walk at point 7 and back to Edwardstone. "Fox and Hounds" Groton, is approximately 2/3rds of the way round so made an ideal lunch spot. Garden is OK, no dogs in pub, food good and staff friendly. We really enjoyed this walk, mainly field paths and very pretty countryside.
