A very pleasant walk over the delightful rolling countryside around Kingsley, the middle sections of the walk are quite hilly so it's a good route if you're in need of exercise. The quarry has long gone or is well hidden, the footpaths are well marked and the stiles are okay, and the walk starts and finishes at the village pub.

Best walked in summer as some of the enclosed paths near the end are in deep bridle gullies which are used by horses like the one in the photo. They are likely to get a bit boggy in winter. There is one field of crops to cross and the others are all meadows; there is only a short length of one lane, the rest is quite rural.

Suitable for children, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for small dogs that can be lifted over stiles, but hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled, but boots will be best, especially if there has recently been heavy rain. There should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts.

There are no facilities on the route, except for those at the pub. If you book in advance, you should be able to get a good meal with your drink; an excellent finish to a good walk.
