As of August 2022, there is a housing development in Wootton, south of Brackmills business estate, between 52.212005, -0.876542 and 52.206141, -0.869590. The footpath is diverted without clear signage, forcing a small diversion along Landimore Road between the roundabout at Newport Pagnell Road and the corner at about 52.210875, -0.869976 where a small gate allows access to a woodland path that runs to Hardingstone village. Don’t let it put you off though :-)...
Parts were not well signposted, in particular around Tythe Farm (derelict) and the following section of the railway line. Just after the farm, the path turns left through a metal gate and then along the embankment of the railway - it seems the route is petering out but persevere through (and around) the tree trunks and you'll find steps eventually leading down to the bottom....
Nice route, with some redirection necessary for path changes, it would seem, besides currently obstructed at the M1 crossing near Hartwell....
One short stretch into Sherrington is along fairly busy road with no pavement....
