The moderately-sized walk is not strenuous, using footpaths, farm tracks and short stints on country lanes and finishing on Hadrian's Wall. Its start is at 'Banks', a milecastle on Hadrian's Wall. At the time of writing the car park is free, but well-used. Be aware that you are using farm tracks and going through farmyards, so please respect farmers and their livestock.

The Holy Well itself is a sulphurous spring and even though there is a mug there, I personally did not partake of it!
