Across Echin Wood leaving three fields between that and the Lane, 'till you come to the Lane again; and then up the Lane by the Hoath's Hedge Side 'till you come to the Hundred House, and thro' the Hundred House Field to Pouncely Lane; and along the High-Way to the Meeting House - across the Stream along the High-Way, and round Cornwall's House - down to that River Side, just above the Furnace Pond; and then up from the River to the House where King lived, the last in Buxted.
