This is an excellent circular countryside walk and mostly along well used footpaths with half of the route making good use of the famous Sandstone Trail. Some fields you cross may have crops or farm animals but apart from a few sheep there were no animals when we passed through. There are some excellent high-level panoramic views across the Cheshire plain that are quite outstanding; and a couple of short sections of pleasant woodland to enjoy passing through. In winter and after heavy rain you are likely to find a few quite muddy patches. The route is mainly gently undulating but near the end there is a quite steep section, fortunately up a good track. There's a good mixture of stiles, latched gates, kissing gates and a few timber bridges. The photo shows an attractive cottage in Utkinton near Rose Farm.

The walk is suitable for children, senior citizens and anyone in-between. The route is excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled, but boots will be best in winter and there should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. On your route there are no refreshments picnic tables, bench seats or any other facilities.

The council have constructed a new wooden footbridge over the breach by waymark 3; and the path is now open again.

At step 3 of the walk the pathway has collapsed and you cannot get over the deep channel that has formed.
