Description of walk contributed by Matthew Marriott

Starting from the University, heading over the Old Hopfields to cross Crondall Lane, and drop behind a Police Dog Training Unit to cross a stream.

Rise up to a farm, where Appaloosa horses and donkeys roam, descending into a valley in the Old Park.

Onward to Dippenhall, walking alongside a medieval pig run, crossing fields and woodland until you return to the Hopfields and UCA where we began.
