Ingham Priory is the first major historical feature of this lovely walk and is only 100 yards from the parking area. Only a small amount remains, including some rooms and a spiral staircase, but there is enough to reconstruct sections of the priory. After passing the priory the route follows country lanes and footpaths to the east and north to join Common Road. The road isn't a road but a trackway and situated well away from houses and farms, making it a haven for deer and foxes. The track is fairly long and takes you into the village of Lessingham. The village is surrounded by fields and is stunning around harvest time with the golden wheat and barley blowing in the wind.

The route turns south and starts to head back to Ingham from here, but passes another historical feature: a medieval moat. Very little is known about the site, which is very clear with water-filled ditches and a causeway on the south side. A peek through the woods on the south side will afford the best view!

Lovely country walk. The track between Ingham and Lessingham is particularly nice and Lessingham Church is worth a short detour to visit.
