Start at St Gregory’s church, the heart of the village for more than 800 years. Follow the road past the farm buildings and just before the gate turn right up the track, passing the farmhouse on your right. Continue along this track, past the Old Smithy.
Keep to the left track, as it curves around the hillside to the sunnier southern side of West Hill.
Follow the track through a gate and continue past the ruined cottage on your left, to a stile. Cross the stile.
Take the path on the left up to the top of West Hill where you will find the remains of an Iron Age hillfort. Retrace your steps from the top back down to rejoin the main path, and head towards the stile in the field wall.
If you do not want to climb West Hill take the path to the right and follow it to the stile in at the head of the field wall.
Cross the stile in the wall, go over the stepping stones and follow the path up hill. At the top of the hill turn sharp left to reach the top of St Gregory’s Hill. For a shorter walk do not cross the stile but turn left along the track back down to Kirknewton. Joining onto the main track that you came along and turning right, back to the village.
Once you have finished exploring St Gregory's Hill retrace your steps. Turn left onto the track, go through the gate and continue to follow this track downhill back to the main road. Come down the hill along the waymarked track around St Gregory’s Hill, and Rreturn to the village along the road.
