This circular walk of about 5¼ miles starts and finishes in Barkway, which is situated on the B1368 3½ miles south of Royston in the north of the county.

The route takes in the village of Reed with its Saxon church and includes a short detour to enjoy the fine views from the chalk escarpment over the flat land to the north.

There is another short detour to visit the site of a long-abandoned moated settlement, before returning across the fields to Barkway.
