Leaving Morebattle, you pass Teapot Street, its unusual name believed to be a corruption of 'Tip it Street', the road to the village dump. Bear right just outside the village, up the steep hill signposted Hownam, and down the other side into the Kale Valley.
Hownam is a small village with a church further up the valley.
Just over a quarter of a mile up this road, you will come to a ford, where for many years, locals used to park their cars, and the local bus company their buses, to wash them in the flowing water.
As you reach the valley bottom you are passing through the former Parish and township of Mow, whose name is preserved only in Mowhaugh.
