After crossing into a field, carry on along the footpath, which passes along the edge of fields, until you reach a road. At the road turn left, and head down the hill. After the turn for Howsham village, you can find a gate in the wood on the righthand side of the road. There is a path through the wood on the edge of the road, which is a pleasant change from walking down the road.
