The walk starts at a high level and drops very little, so that the wide views from the Beacon (which included the Lake District, miles of the Pennines and the Welsh hills on the day that I recorded the walk) are gained with minimum effort. Weekends could be busier, but I found the area, as always in mid-week, very tranquil.

Ian is quite right; the start of the walk is now under thousands of tons of topsoil where the golf course has been changed. However, it is very easy to by-pass and get back on the right route by a simpler route. This will appear shortly on the website, but in the nature of things the original route may be re-instated in due course. Jim Grindle.

I went this evening (21-07-14)to do this walk with my wife and son only to find that the start of the walk is non-existent due to major earthworks undertaken right at the beginning of the walk thus meaning steps 1-3 cannot be traced. We wandered around for 30 mins trying to get our bearing using GPS but to no avail and so abandoned the walk. Having come home and plotted the co-ordinates on Google Map-Pedometer I can see where the walking route is but the landscape is no longer as suggested on WW website.
