This outing follows a section of the Elham Valley Way to Elham village, before curving S.W. via the umbrageous surroundings of Tye Wood. Boyke Lane and the tiny hamlet of Ottinge are visited.
Leave HPB Sibton Park and turn left along the road. After 300m leave the road on the right at a footpath sign, cross the field diagonally emerging onto a road. Cross the road to enter and walk along the driveway of ‘Half Acre’ and pass through a wide gate. Maintain the previous course along the edge of the field, descending towards a stile and footbridge.
Negotiate these, turn left and join the Elham Valley Way making towards a stile keeping the field boundary on your right (Ignore a stile on the left. This will be utilised during the return section). The next landmark is a brick railway bridge. (Years ago trains halted in a siding hereabouts, to be loaded with vegetables etc.).
