There are two new benches on Ham Green, a nice little commons with great views towards Sparsholt and Deane. Traffic-wise, Dean Lane is usually quiet and also good for cycling. On the return there is a climb towards Lanham Lane and then a gentle decline back down to Dean Lane. The longer version of the walk combines Ham Green with Crab Wood.
