A walk which is a recent development for me, to make use of the little-used parking area at Eddlestow Lot. The route is easy to follow with only a few paths near Uppertown that are likely to become overgrown.

The route offers much of interest, with a good range of habitat and scenery. Just standing and watching in the more remote areas can offer rewards as the wildlife becomes less aware of your movement.

Much of the route is field-paths and green lane tracks, though some road-walking is required on quiet, narrow village roads. Only one farm had any obstructions with electric fences across the path and wire fencing across an open gateway; this was easily pushed aside to allow access to the path.

We did this walk on Sunday and found it very confusing. We struggled to actually find the start point. The directions were too indepth, and were confusing. We got to points 32/33 and ended up going in the wrong direction, walking an extra 3 miles. It would have been better to put street names or clearer directions as it is confusing to follow. Quite a lot of the instructions were not needed. I do however, agree with the views on the walk, as it was a clear day, and we could see for miles.
