St Mary's of North Hinckford

Approx. distance:   12 miles

Leaving Great Henny Church, at the end of the lane turn right, follow the road down hill until you reach the T-junction, turn left towards Sudbury. Follow this attractive road until you reach the cross roads and traffic lights at Ballingdon. Go straight across the junction. Follow this hilly road for a couple of miles.

After ascending a steepish hill you will reach a T-junction, turn left - sign-posted Belchamp Walter, Hall and church. This road is mostly single track and quite twisty.

After a mile and a half or so there is a left turn sign-posted for Belchamp Hall and Belchamp Walter Church.

After leaving the church you will need to double back on yourself and return to the road to Belchamp Walter. At the junction turn left and follow this road through the village and on towards Belchamp Otten, much of this road is winding and single track.

After winding between several farms and barns, the road emerges at a T-junction on the outskirts of Belchamp Otten. Turn left here and continue on, passing Belchamp Otten Church and through the village.

At the end of the road turn left in to Belchamp St Paul. A few hundred yards along here turn right just before the village green and continue along this road out of the village towards Ovington.

Approximately a mile and a half further on, take the second right turn and follow the narrow road for about 200 yards. Ovington Church is set back from the road on your left.
