Park on the road near The Old Horns Inn.

Go along Brown House Lane in a south easterly direction towards Sheffield.

Turn left and ascend up Kirk Edge Road. About 50m after the junction with Little Lane there is a large ladder stile on the right hand side of the road.

Cross the stile and head across the field towards Castle Hill.

Cross two more stiles and then enter onto the Castle Hill earthworks.

Continue in a south easterly direction until the wall on your left swings left. Continue along the ridge to the ladder stile.

Cross the stile and take the path down to the next ladder stile and into the lane.

Turn left and proceed up the lane. Follow the lane as it swings right and on to the Cliffe House Farm.

As you enter the farm yard turn left an go through the gate and up the hill along the lane.

The official footpath cuts diagonally across the top 150m of the field. However the field may well have a crop and it is sensible to proceed to the top of the lane and turn right onto the road.

Follow the road for a third of a mile, then take the path off to your left just before the trees around the convent.

Follow the path keeping close to the wall on your right.

At the end of the wall follow the path across the field, continuing in almost the same direction as the line of the wall you have been following, which is north.

Keep going across the large field. Cross the wall and the smaller field until you cross the stile into the road called Onesmoor Bottom.

Turn left and follow the road to the cross roads.

Turn left at the cross roads and head uphill towards the trees.

As you reach the trees take the footpath on your left and marked to Bradfield.

The path swings right beyond the trees and climbs across two more fields. Cross the narrow track and into the next field. The exit from the field is diagonally to your left in the corner of the field. This is the peak of Onesmoor.

Cross the stile and start the descent back to High Bradfield.

Go straight across the field. There is a stile about 150m right of the main gate into the field. The ground at the bottom of the field is a bit boggy, so tread carefully.

Cross the road taking the marked foot path into the field.

Turn immediately left ad go a few metres along until you reach the track, then continue toward Bradfield.
