From the town of Wadebridge, our walk takes us high up and along a wide farm track and through farmland, to join quiet country lanes through the village of Burlawn before dropping steeply down again into a valley. After crossing a bridge we leave the road and enter Bishop's Wood, where we follow a wide forest track for about 1.5km (part alongside the river) to Polbrock Bridge, where we cross to the other side of the river. From here, we make the return 3km leg back to Wadebridge along the River Camel on the flat, well-surfaced old railway bed that is now part of the Camel Trail.

Walked it today Our GPS recorded 8.58km or 5.33 miles of course distance does depend on where on Guineaport Road you park or if you choose to park elsewhere in Wadebridge. Be aware that after heavy rains where it says in waypoint 3 'turns sharp left' that the lane is difficult to pass with deep puddles. We went straight ahead to the gate in the field onto the road and resumed the route. One other note is the GPX file only shows the outbound route and not the return along the Camel Trail, hence probably the discrepancy on distance. Cracking walk.

We have just completed this walk and would like to say that the length of this walk is far greater than the 3.7 miles as stated. I Clocked this as just over 6 miles in total (using mytrails) and it took us about 2 hours 40 mins
