Keep on the road which bends slightly right and immediately after Myrtle Cottage turn left on a marked footpath over a footbridge and continue straight ahead crossing a wide track. The path is clearly marked and has gorse on either side. The path eventually leads to a crossing with a bridle path.

Turn left at the bridle path to rejoin the sandy track at a 'T' junction where you will turn right to retrace your path back to Friston. (As an alternative you can keep on the public footpath and cross the field directly ahead of you through the gap in the hedge and then cut across the field bearing slightly left. This will also bring you back to the sandy track but a little closer to Friston.)

Follow the track back into the village of Friston and on reaching the road go straight ahead down Church Road to reach the church and the centre of the village.
