Continue for 200m along the lane to a footpath on the left.

Turn right along the lane to Shobrooke Mill where the Water Station will be situated (Halfway point).

(You should pass the tree with the rope swing during this section.)
Emerge on to Church Lane and follow the lane south, then west to the road near the war memorial entering Shobrooke Park by the top gate.
