This is a very short walk, but serves well to build up an appetite for a lunch or dinner in the Robin Hood pub. My suggestion to use their car park should only be done if you are going to use the pub either before or after the walk. I can recommend the Sunday roast!

I'm very fond of this little village or hamlet as my best friend lived here when I was a schoolboy, so I spent a lot of time here at the weekends. Back then this was my playground.

The Belne Brook, a tributary of the River Stour runs through the village. The brook used to supply water to the mill for water-powered forges. These were used in the production scythes.
