The walk starts at the car park next to the beach. This is a pay-and-display car park but is not expensive (about £1.50 per day) and is located on the edge of the national nature reserve which runs up the beach at Winterton.

The route passes the local shops and houses towards the cathedral-like church. The path offers fantastic views of the church from all sides and from a distance further along the walk. The route heads up to the top of the nearby hills towards High Barn Farm. From this footpath there are distant views down to the coast and the North Sea, with other features in all directions including the nearby windfarm to the west. These hills have been important for many thousands of years, with their history of occupation ranging back as far as the Bronze Age, right through the Roman and Saxon period.

The return route follows the track back to the road and then down country lanes through Winterton to the beach. The nature reserve along the beach is worth a gentle stroll through as it plays host to many rare species of wildlife.
