[To visit the memorial Stone to Sir Robert Hunter, cross ford and turn immediately left onto footpath on opposite side of the lake from car park. Memorial stone is a few metres along path on L.]

Walk from car park entrance on metalled Waggoner's Well Road towards (but not crossing) ford.  About 50m before ford, turn R through gap in hedge and enter footpath (sp).  Turn L immediately off main footpath (N) and, passing over ridge, follow indistinct footpath R along water's edge, contouring round N side of Hunter's Moon Hill on gradually clearer path.  Pass ponds on L and eventually continue ahead on footpath along watercourse, passing through car barrier onto vehicle track at electricity sub-station.  Leave National Trust property and reach footpath junction.

{The footpath L from here climbs a steep degraded track (N) to join metalled road leading steeply up to main Headley Road B3002 at Grayshott (about 5 mins walk).   #23 bus stops to Haslemere and Haslemere station are about 100m along Headley Road R.}

Continue ahead (SE) on vehicle track to further path junction.  Turn L (sp) onto narrow path and, emerging shortly onto concreted vehicle track Stoney Bottom, turn L and climb steeply past houses to junction with unmade Hill Road.  Turn L on Hill Road into Grayshott.  The Fox and Pelican pub car park is on Headley Road (B3002) straight ahead across village centre road junction to R.
