With your back to the pub,turn left and pick up the Worcestershire Way at the waymarker.
Follow the grass path and then join the stone track. Turn right, ignoring the Worcestershire Way, and follow this track for 300 yards past the converted chapel on your left till you come to a cross-roads of paths.
Cider Mill Farm is ahead of you but turn left up the hill in a deep sunken track, or, if this is muddy, use the grassy path running parallel to this up the hill.

At the top of the sunken track, pick up a stone track which will take you to the football pitch and Bringsty's six-ways junction.
Take the third path on the left (though others will do) and climb onto a short but exhilarating walk along the ridge and past the massive Gospel Oak, marking the parish between Whitbourne and Linton parishes.
Carry on to meet the track to the pub at the Bringsty noticeboard. Cross the track and go straight ahead to the top of the Jubilee and enjoy the panoramic views from the viewfinder on top.

Now go straight on and after 50 yards bear left on a grass path which winds down the hill.
Above the house with the lake, Barratt's Bridge, the path levels out and you follow the path keeping the Jubilee on your left. You then pass a house on your left before reaching the pub.
