Starting at the small lay-by opposite Sutton Garden Centre, the route heads a short way north down the road before heading out into the open countryside. This first section of footpath is glorious in autumn, with a wide variety of colours on every tree. The footpath follows the edge of a small dyke all the way to the entrance to the churchyard. The picturesque church and its surroundings are kept in superb condition and are a delight to walk through.
The next section of the walk follows two quiet country lanes, one of which is part of the Weavers Way long-distance path. This section of road offers some of the best landscape views of the whole walk. The gentle ascent allows for some beautiful views back down to Sutton and to the surrounding landmarks and villages. The nearest landmark is Sutton Cornmill which is in the general view photo for this walk. This mill is quite substantial, being nine storeys in height, making it the highest surviving windmill in the United Kingdom! It was built in 1789 on the remains of an older windmill that burnt down and has twice since been struck by lightning.
The last section of the walk follows quiet country lanes and another footpath to get back to the start. Along this section there are numerous viewpoints to Sutton Church and back to Sutton Cornmill.
