Leave the Green Man PH by the front door and turn left into Church Road.
Follow the road and at the second junction go straight ahead into Stonebridge Lane.
In 250 yards you will come to the bridge over the River Itchen from which the village gets its name.
A further 20 yards after the bridge go through the kissing gate on your left and follow the river upstream.
The river bends to the left and the Holy Trinity church comes into view. Head towards the church for another 150 yards and then look towards the hedgerow on your right and you will see a yellow marker post and a pair of kissing gates.
Pass though the two kissing gates into a small field that may contain horses. Follow the wooden fence on your left to another kissing gate which you pass through and join Bascote Road.
Turn left onto the roadway and continue to the T junction where you turn left and walk back to the pub.
