(S) From Foxton Station, walk South-East across the field towards St Laurence Church. Pass through a kissing gate to reach the High Street.

(1) Turn right (South-West) by the Church and walk along the High Street. Pass the village shop on your left and the White Horse Pub on your right, then pass the war memorial on your right.

You can take a detour to Foxton Wood on your left at Caxton Lane otherwise, walk all the way along the High Street, becoming Shepreth Road until it reaches the A10. There is pavement most of the way along, and where this runs out there are wide verges.

(2) Cross the A10 carefully, and look to your left for a footpath sign. Turn right (North-West) along the footpath through the Wimbish Estate, crossing the wooden bridge to the left (South-West) where the path divides.

At the end of the footpath, turn right along Wimbish Estate lane in between houses, towards Shepreth and Barrington.

(3) When you reach Angle Lane, turn left (South-West) towards Fowlmere Road. Then turn right (West) onto Fowlmere Road and follow it past the Village Hall on your right where it becomes Station Road. Follow Station road to Shepreth Station.(E)
