At point 4 you come across a footbridge and steps where the undergrowth has been cleared. If you take this it is easy progress and it brings you to road whereupon you only have to walk up then left to church. At point 10, the signpost has disappeared but it is still an obvious right turn. Enjoyable walk.

Very good walk. The Swan at Brierley has now re-opened (August 2011)

Stunning walk - many thanks! We enjoyed it so much, we extended it to 11 miles by leaving the walk at point 11, following the Wysis Way to GR 602142 and picking up the Lydbrook spur footpath at GR597145, rejoining the walk at point 14.
