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.
Follow the road round to the right and pass under the old railway bridge. Turn immediately left and go up the small incline onto the old railway line and continue for some 300 yards until you get to the fork in the path.
Take the left fork up to the Bascote Road.
Turn left onto the roadway and continue to the T junction where you turn left and walk back to the pub.
