A very good walk with good variety of scenery. We did it on a sunny late April day which helped: it starts at a nature reserve which was golden with gorse. After a short quiet road section there is a picnic spot by the river. It then follows the river in a lovely wide valley and continues through the park beyond the house. After the road crossing you enter very pleasant woodland with bluebells underneath. There are ancient trees and some lovely open sections. The farmland is well cared for and managed for wildlife so dogs should usually be on leads. There are a couple of fields with cows in which did not trouble us despite their calves being right across the path. It seems odd to follow a map with no paths shown but with care it is easy despite the seemingly brief directions. The permissive paths and private areas are well marked and should be respected. Only a few Spring butterflies about but then it was a cold day (11C max.). The only real drawback is some rather smelly pigs near the nature reserve. I intend to give a little more information on the route separately.
