From Alwinton we walk over pastureland to the hamlet of Clennell, passing Clennell Hall with its log cabins and caravan site. From here we follow the road up the Alwin Valley to the start of Kidland Forest. A sharp uphill climb through the trees brings us up to the hamlet of Kidlandlee, then through further woodland to Clennell Street. An ancient drove road, used to smuggle whisky and livestock over the hills to Hownam in Scotland, is now well-used as a walking and cycling route to the border ridge. We follow this route down, passing settlements and enclosures back into Alwinton, where the village pub awaits the thirstiest of walkers.
