6. Through the kissing gates and over the little bridge (if it still exists!)

8. On the way back down, turn right just before the Scout Hut

9. Back over the little bridge (watch your shins on the bench thing) and up the steep section.

10. At the top of the steep section you come out back onto the main bridleway. Turn left down the hill and it’s 200m back to the finish
