A circular walk which starts at the restored 1950’s railway station (see photo on the right), and wanders over a variety of farm fields, through a delightful tunnel of rhododendrons, past a popular garden centre, through a riding school farm, along several rural lanes and back along the magnificent tree lined Wirral Way. Full details about the main feature of this walk, the old Hadlow Road railway station are described in the additional information box below and a photo of it is on the right here. Take time to explore it and you can look in the old signal box too, also the station toilets are fully operational.

The walk is suitable for older children, senior citizens and anyone in-between. In dry conditions suitable footwear would be anything stout with flat soles, but boots are advised if the ground may be wet. The walk is also fine for dogs but unfortunately unsuitable for wheelchairs & buggies. There is a café and more toilets at the Gordale Garden Centre, and also a café among the shops in the center of the village. Except at the back of the old station there are no picnic tables or bench seats on this walk.
