Did this walk on 13/01/11; a bright day, white cloud but very mild 12c. I clocked 11.37km (7.06m). It took me 3h 15m including a 15m coffee break at the very welcome bench half way up the broadway - broadway tower ascent. The route directions are still fine even though they must have been written years ago, although many of the styles have now been repaced by kissing gates. The fields/meadows were quite wet, muddy and slippery following all the snow and rain but the beauty of walking at this time of year is that you have it all to yourself! Derek Horner

15/5/04 Tracey Wyatt. Agree with timings - we did walk in much less time even allowing for puffing up the hill to Broadway Tower. If picnicing we felt the best picnic spots/superb views were to be found from Snowshill to Broadway, therefore would suggest starting/parking in Broadway (and also getting the hard bit over first). Then, as a reward at the end of the walk have a large whippy ice cream in Broadway!

"Completed on 13/10/02. A truly excellent walk this (even in pouring rain) which we thoroughly enjoyed. The only comments to add is that the timing is way out. Without stops the walk should take a maximum 200 mins (and no we do take our time!). However I'd allow plenty of time to explore, eat and drink in Broadway. For snack and lunch stops I'd suggest Broadway or if you dont want the hustle and bustle head out of Broadway and go straight to Broadway tower for expansive views (part way up between point 12-13 is a nice bench for a drink stop) An alternative is to go beyond the tower, to the exit and into the Rookery, there is a restaurant, play area and picnic area here." A big comment Chris so feel free to truncate where need be!
