We will leave the Village Church turning right out of the village before taking the right fork to join the undulating road which skirts around Brazacott. At the T junction we turn left and stay on that road past Chelsfield Farm shop taking a right at the next cross road and right again for a short stretch on the B3254 then the first left and follow the lanes towards Boyton. We stay on the road through Boyton and go down the hill into the Upper Tamar Valley at the small hamlet of Bridgetown. We turn right to follow the valley until we meet the A388 where we turn right and climb up through Dutson, past Homeleigh Garden centre and then take a right along a small lane towards St Stephens where we pick up the road to Eggloskerry. Just before Egloskerry we turn right and drop down to cross the river Ottery before climbing back up to North Petherwin

Mostly Cornish country lanes with one short section on a B road and a slightly longer uphill section on an A road. As the roads are narrow we stop if we need to let farm vehicles past.
