The Route

From Dunston Church, cross the road and leave the village along Chapel Lane past the village hall. (Do turn in here to see the George III statue.) At the edge of the village, where the road bears sharp left, a footpath ahead can be used to cut the corner and rejoin the road a little way nearer to Metheringham.

Follow the road into Metheringham village, go over Lincoln Road and walk along High Street into the village centre to arrive at the cross in the middle of the street (Cross Hill) outside the Star and Garter Inn.
