We crossed the road at this point and turned left to the Stepping Stones sign and the North Downs Way below. After crossing the A24 beware cyclists on the cycle path travelling at speed in both directions.
N.b. Had we been with children we would have walked towards Burford Bridge and used the pedestrian underpass. There, beware of cyclists ignoring the signs to dismount who are arguably as dangerous as speeding cars above on the road. If you chose this option follow the river through Burford meadow after you cross the road and rejoin the North Downs Way later.
From the lookout point turn left along the road to the tea shop and National Trust Centre.

After this delightful morning walk we enjoyed a fine lunch in Denbies restaurant before another walk in the afternoon on the western side of the valley through the vineyards and woods to Ranmore and back.
