Walk 8.  Pithill and Glidden                                                                  4 miles

Starting from The People?s Market, go up Speltham Hill following the road right to the top.   After it levels out, you reach a road junction signposted ?Pithill? ? turn left here.   Follow the lane downhill, then up a short hill where it bends left by some stables.   At the next bend, take the stony track straight ahead.   In just under a mile, after another track joins from the right, you will pass a barn.   At the next junction go left.   Around this area in summer, large numbers of swallows may be seen.

Immediately after a pond, turn left towards some farm buildings, where the path goes slightly right.   The footpath then follows the line of the electricity poles across several fields, crossing a track and continuing across an arable field.   Climb over a stile and continue past some buildings to a stile.   Head between the horseboxes, going left then immediately right onto a narrow path between hedges.   This path soon emerges onto the driveway of a house.   Two roads meet at a fork here.   Turn right onto the farthest road that goes downhill.   This is Speltham Hill, the road you came up at the start, leading back to the People?s Market.
