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.
Where the road turns sharp left continue straight ahead and pass to the right hand side of the old farm workers cottages.
Go through a 5 bar metal and go through a second metal gate in 25 yards and a third one in another 25 yards.
Then go through the newly installed kissing gate and follow the footpath keeping the hedgerow to your right until you come to another kissing gate.
Go through the kissing gate and in about 100 yards fork left via a track into the wood. As you emerge from the other side of the wood there is a concrete bridge over the river with metal cross pieces like a stile at either end.
After crossing the bridge turn left and in a few yards you will come to a crossroads of footpaths and turn left onto the disused railway line.
Continue along the railway line crossing the River Itchen twice and the metal bridge over Stonebridge Lane, passing the map guide until you reach the fork in the path by the blue sign and take the left fork up to Bascote Road.
Turn left onto the road and continue to the T junction where you turn left and return to the pub.
