Cross the stile and then cross directly over the road to the stile on the opposite side of the road. Walk through the field and then through the gates and across the next field to a road.
Cross the road and the path descends diagonally across a large open field to the lower end of Milton St. Turn left and walk along the road for about 150 yds.
