From the main line railway station, we step out along Steppy Lane, then along the banks of the River Aln, passing under a viaduct to reach Bilton Mill. Here we cross fields and pass through woodland to the hamlet of Spylaw, with good views all round. Along the farm road we reach Bilton Barns, where holiday cottages provide part of the farmer's income. Further fields are crossed to reach Wooden Farm, with views over Almouth Bay before we return to the station, passing under the line as we approach.

Walked 29 Jun 14 with our 2 miniature schnauzers and agree largely with previous comment re walk being overgrown after Bilton Barns. But we found that this was mostly in planted fields (wheat and rapeseed) where the farmer had not cut out the public footpath. The very last part of the walk was overgrown somewhat but again mainly due to the proximity of crops close to uncultivated ground. None of this is too much of a problem if the weather is dry but be prepared for a soaking waist down if its wet!

Hi, did this walk on the 17/10/13 really nice walk , but must point out that from BILTON FARM to the end of walk the paths are overgrown in places also lack of marker posts. The gates were tied with string , its very obvious the farmer does not want ramblers on his land.
