This is a delightful walk but in desperate need of revision. In particular around waypoints 4 and 5 the local authority have closed the stated path and done some major reroutings. Also at waypoint 8 it is now possible to use a new permissive path which cuts out the rocky path which when I walked the route was quite a stream (good for cleaning the boots though). Inevitably, time has changed some of the features - some stiles have become gates, metal gates have been replaced with wooden gates and so on. I guess all of these issues put an hour onto the length of the walk.
