Re-walked this one after 8 years,again thoroughly enjoyed it. A couple of updates required which are,at waymark 2,the gate hidden in brambles has now gone,there is now a waymark directing you across the field edge.At waymark 3,the path heading diagonally left to the track has gone,so instead turn left along the field edge to the corner,turn right to arrive at the track.At waymark 5 there is no gate and stile,just a footbridge.Cross it,then bear left across the field to a large gap in the hedge then turn right.Follow this track to the 1st stile at waymark 6.At waymark 9 after reaching the track and turning right,there is only one footpath on the left just after the trees,take this one on to the bank.At waymark 11,at the fork in the trees,go straight ahead,it leads to the same pathway,the pathway on the right fork is overgrown.When you reach the B1027,take care as there is no pavement all the way to St Mary's Road,just a narrow grass verge.The footpath which goes across the huge field,is 100m on from the last house.

A nice walk, very enjoyable. Just a few updates: At waymark 5 you have to cross a bridge before reaching Crocky Grove on your left. At waymark 12, you have to leave via the platform because the path on the right is closed due to building works. A nice family walk.

Another great walk by Brian & Anne, a very varied walk with some nice wide tracks most of the way and very easy to follow, with good clear instructions, plenty of wildlife to watch between waypoint 10 & 11, most enjoyable.
