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....
