Did this walk on 11/12/16, point 13 is no longer a farm yard its an upmarket housing development, point 17- 18 is a narrow twisty road with fast traffic and little or no verge, points 24-25 Dalton Old Hall Farm after leaving farm at point 26 turn right where a sign points straight on or right (hedge has vanished) point 28 goes round Coat Green Farm and then over small bridge, just keep going North from now on.

Re Cragg House. (points 16 through 17). The path has now been diverted through the field south of house, so there is no need to go through the farm yard.

We did this walk on 15 June and had a very unpleaseant experience. Between points 16 and 17 the footpath passes through a farm as we went through the gate into the farmyard we were set upon by two large Rotweillers which were barking and snarling and snapping at our clothing and had us pinned against the gate. I screamed for help and their owner appeared and called them off. We asked if the footpath did pass through the farm and he said "no it goes round" but allowed us to pass through to the lane. We could not see any way around the farm signed or otherwise and the map does show the foootpath as going through, so i think he was probably lying and also seemed to get some enjoyment from our fear of his dogs. I would recommend people think carefully before attempting this part of the walk.

I was surprised to see a problem with a Jim Grindle walk so decided to 'do' it myself. There are a couple of places with potential problems but this walk is definitely worth doing. The views are stunning just about everywhere. Today was a gloriously sunny day so that that may have helped too!

At waypoint 5, after going through the gate take the right hand path. The left hand one has a post on it but is NOT the way to go.

At waypoint 7 there are lots of side paths and it's easy to follow a 'wrong' one. Basically, as long as you go uphill you will end up at the crags. After a couple of hundred yards on the path there is a line of low rocks across the path with a shallow gully beyond however these are obviously not the crags but the path does head to the right here up the hill.

At 14 do go slightly uphill first with the track. I went straight on and ended up too low with a long drag up hill to get back on track. The best advice I can give is not to rely solely on the written description and photographs. Do use the map to confirm the route points.

Fantastic views all along the way.

This walk was submitted April 2004 so surprised to hear of difficulties. The walk is being investigated. Chris, administrator

We attempted this walk at the weekend, I don't know how old this walk is but a few of the landmarks listed appeared to have gone and we ended up missing the best part of the walk, would not recommend this walk
