Now that the Lundsfield track has been closed off to the public the race goes back to the finish via Thwaite End Bridge number 127.



Please study the map and description below. The revised route goes left along a grassy track towards Thwaite House Farm and then follows the public footpath diagonally across a field ,then crosses the farm access lane through slit stiles into and steeply down the next field to meet another track which is followed down right to meet the out route at Thwaite End Bridge number 127. The out route is then reversed back along the canal to the finish.
