Bridleway 23 starts on the Hatley to Croydon Road opposite Holbeins  Farm at about 77 metres above sea level (TL 296505). In the 1840s a large white brick farmhouse was built, replacing what was known formerly as Carters Farm. According to the Royal Commission of Historic Monuments:


(9) CARTER’S FARM, L-shaped, two-storeyed, of white brick with hipped and slated roof; c. 1840. the N.E., front elevation has five sash windows and a central front door with latticed fanlight. The lower rear wing houses offices.









The bridleway continues northeast for about 350 metres until it reaches the parish boundary of East Hatley and Arrington (TL 298508) where it meets Footpath 5. This path runs south-southeast along the boundary with Arrington to meet the road at Croydon Hill Farm. Continuing northeast is Bridleway 23 which leads to Ermine Street just north of Valley Farm.
