Sherborne Lane, near the junction of Broad Street, silver Street and Pound Street, dates back to Saxon times. It is attractive, narrow and fairly steep and features a number of listed buildings.

Following it downhill will bring you to the river and turning left to the bridge then crossing the bridge and turning back onto the path on the other side of the river will take you back into town via the Town Mill.

This is the riverside path which runs from Coombe Street to the Town Mill and then, after crossing the river again, will take you back into Broad Street in the town centre.

It is an easy path and has water on both sides.
