An interesting, not too difficult walk in this area of the Peak District. Most of the paths are along field-paths and tracks, mostly easy to find and all stiles were present when walked, though some waymarks were misleading and pointed in the wrong direction at a couple of stiles. There are no really steep ascents, though there are a couple of steady, long climbs and one short, quite steep descent. Some sections can become quite boggy, particularly following the stream from Wetton Mill to Butterton and between Onecote and Ford.

The pub used on this walk is the Jarvis Arms in Onecote. This pub is walker-friendly and is open all day through the summer period (except Monday); at other times it may close depending on demand during weekdays. The pub is carpeted, so be prepared to extend the usual courtesy and remove or cover muddy boots. They offer a good-value menu with reasonable choice, also an interesting range of real ales which change frequently, usually with at least one from Titanic Breweries (the landlord has always joked that it goes down well!) Others have included ales from Abbey Dale and Leather Breaches (Fenny Bentley). Outside there is a selection of bench tables on lawned beer-garden beside the juvenile River Hamps. There are signs displayed requesting you not to consume your own food at these tables.

Great walk and mostly easy to follow. Since it was written the Hamps Way has been waymarked and co-incides with this walk at 22- 24. At 24 the directions are now hard to follow because renovation work is taking place on the barns. If you follow the Hamps Way markers you end up about 40 meters to the left of Felthouse farm and need to turn left for about 80 metres to pick up the walk at 25. If you follow the markers and then keep on the track uphill (not crossing the stile to continue the Hamps Way) which is now very clearly a driveway you come out onto the road as descibed!
