Cycle Steps
1. When heading through Winteringham, you enter the Village on Silver St. head up High Burgage, and turn left, out of the village on Cliff Rd. Also In East Butterwick, when turning left to Messingham, the junction is at the very southern end of the Village. There is another left, about halfway through, before you reach the pub "The Dog and Gun," ignore that left. Other than that, the route is pretty simple and well sign posted.
