This walk is on high ground on the outward route and once in Lathkill Dale on the return, follows easy riverside paths. Much of the route is easy walking with little offering any great demands, though there are a couple of quite steep descents.

Most of the walk is along field-paths, but some road-walking is required through Over Haddon and on the return between connecting paths.

The descent into Lathkill Dale is along a now little-used track; the track was the access to the mill on the banks of the river, below Haddon Grange Farm. The millstones are still on the bank of the river at the bottom of the path.

The pub used on this walk is the reasonably new one in Sheldon The Cock and Pullet; the former pub The Devonshire Arms was the building next door above. Between the old pub closing and the Cock and Pullet opening, Sheldon had been a dry village for over 25 years. It is an interesting village pub, rustically furnished and with plenty of clocks. Bass and Timothy Taylor's 'Landlord' are available on hand pumps. The menu is varied and good value, the set 'roast' meals being particularly good value. Large groups would be best advised to break into smaller lots on your approach, to prevent taking over the pub, annoying other customers and smaller groups.
