Most of the route for this circular walk is along well used footpaths which pass through a wide variety of scenery. It is best walked in the spring or summer when the route is very popular and leaves are on the trees and the paths are not slippery. You will pass through meadows alongside the river which are easy walking, but in summer some may have sheep or cows in them so take a fending walking stick with you just in case. There is a short but pleasant section of planted woodland just as you leave the river, and on the return towards Farndon you will pass through cultivated fields and along the edge of a big new housing estate. Some details of the footpaths may have changed at that location by the time you enjoy this walk. There are no steep slopes and most of the route is fairly level.

The walk is suitable for children, teenagers, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs & buggies. Suitable footwear will be strong trainers or stout shoes - anything flat soled but boots will be best in winter when the worn footpaths will be a little muddy and quite slippery in places especially if there has recently been heavy rain. There should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. On your route there are shops and refreshments in Farndon at the start and finish of the walk. There is a toilet block, picnic tables and bench seats by Farndon Bridge. Elsewhere on the route there is only the scenery and possibly wildlife. If you book in advance you should be able to get a good meal and a drink at the hotel; an excellent finish to a good walk.
