Campton & Chicksands

 

Walk 4 - 3 mile riverside walk via Polehanger Farm and Crackle Hill, Meppershall.

 


  Start walk as Walks 2 and 3 by heading from the Church down Mill Lane, past the 'White Hart' pub. At the end of Mill Lane follow the footpath across the field to the wooden bridge. On the other side of the bridge go through the metal kissing gate and turn immediately left following the river.
Dragon flies, May flies and occasionally Kingfishers can be seen on this stretch of river. Continue to follow this path past the seat until you almost reach the underpass, where you will see a stile on your right. Go over the stile and follow the signs to the right of Polehanger farm and across the field to the track.
  Turn right at the top of the track, down Crackle Hill to the bottom until you reach the drive to 'Woodhall Farm'. Turn right here and then left along the side of the hedge until you reach the metal kissing gate, go through this, turn left again and through the second kissing gate.
Follow your footsteps back over the bridge, across the field past the Mill and The White Hart until you reach the Church.
