Now turn left along the Viking Way, keeping ahead to a stile before veering left uphill to a waymark and stile at the edge of woods known as Bedlam Plantation. The path runs just within the trees, exiting near Castle Farm and then turns left down the valley heading back towards Tealby. In the final field head diagonally to a gate in top left hand corner.

You will arrive back just below Tealby church. (The path opposite leads down to Front Street, the tearooms and the inn.)

This delightful circular walk starts from Packwood House, a well known National Trust property. The walk will give you a flavour of The Millennium Way taking you across mostly flat countryside with just a few stiles. The car park at Packwood House opens from 10.30am to 5.30pm all year.

A - Turn right out of the National Trust car park, down road to pass Grove Lane, then after some 100 paces take the kissing gate L into field following the black Millennium Way waymarker to go over centre of field to kissing gate under power lines. Go ahead with hedge L to cross hidden brook and go half R to power pole in corner by trees to take kissing gate leading into churchyard of St. Giles Church.
