This walk is a joy to participate in. From the start near the very good cafe / restaurant of The Ramblers' Retreat, the path follows a scenic route through hilly, wooded countryside, walking at the side of a few connected lakes or ponds (photographic stuff!} on good paths.
A spot of walking along narrow, winding olde worlde lanes takes the traveller back to an atmosphere of the 1940s. Eventually the walk goes along the old Churnet Valley railway track, now a public footpath. This terminates at the old railway station near Alton Village. Crossing the bridge, we then continue either along the easily walked narrow lane on the right at the far side, or continue along steep footpaths back to The Ramblers' Retreat.
