At Job Centre Plus, the road swings right into St Katharine's Way but you go straight on, passing the Job Centre to your right. When the road bears left around the back of the Steam Packet Inn on your left, you turn right (signposted 'National Cycle Network 28'), uphill for 30 metres to a sign for footpath/cycle route to Ashprington.
Follow this route now until after two miles you reach the stone pillars on the Sharpham Estate drive. Turn left and it is then an easy walk downhill on the footpath that runs alongside the road. This road snakes down and continues on to the Vineyard and the Bathing House.
