We walk southwards as far as Water Oak Corner where we meet the Abbots Way and follow it downhill to Cross Furzes, crossing the Dean Burn on an old clapper bridge.A short stretch of lane walking brings us past Hayford Hall to a footpath which descends through Scae Wood to Higher Coombe, from where it's a short lane walk back to Scoriton.
