We cross another path then turn right to reach a lane, where we go right a short distance then take the field path sharp left that takes us out to Pasture Lane. Here we go left a few yards and take the lane right towards Grange Farm, leaving it to cross the field towards the right of the buildings.

I missed the point where the bridleway cuts diagonally across the field, but fortunately the increasing wetness of the lane ahead forced me to consult the map and was soon back on the right track, which leads past Redvers Farm to Uppingham Road, where we turn left and follow the pavement into Houghton, where the meeting point is at the Rose and Crown bus stop, which has a shelter....
