As previously stated we now turn left into Ash Road and head uphill toward St Saviours Church at the junction of Hall Road, then further uphill we look back the way we have come before heading to the junction of Arden Road.

To be honest I don't really know how long the route was, I would have thought certainly no more than about 12-14 miles. I'll see if I can find out.
