Magnificent views reward you across the Teme Valley from the start of this walk, that starts close to the top of Ankerdine Hill. The area is well-known for its wildlife-rich woodlands; it is alive with birdsong and wildflowers in the spring and summer and filled with colour in the autumn.

The first part of the walk explores the country park, on narrow, twisting paths through the woodland. When the walk eventually descends from the hill, it continues across pleasant countryside, passing several ponds along the way.

Eventually, the walk will lead you into Martley, a busy, rural village that has been in existence for thousands of years. The Norman church is well worth having a look at as you go past, which has some unique wall frescos and the oldest set of six bells in the country.

The return to the start takes you back into woodland, back in the country park, but inevitably, there is a steep climb to return to the top of the hill and the start of the walk.
