Although this circular walk takes you along roads, drives and footpaths which are not used a lot, the first section is along a fairly busy road without pavements. From the very beginning most of the route is very gently uphill, and crossing the golf course is a very pleasant stroll; sometimes over mown grass but mainly along quiet drives. The first real footpath is half way through the walk, taking you across a field and up to Utkinton Hall and the top of the hill. Soon after this the return route becomes more of a challenge, and in winter the footpath over the following horse field is likely to be muddy and boggy. Probably why it's the least used footpath on this walk.

This is followed by a pavement alongside a short length of main road, and then begins the downhill and most delightful part of this walk. First along the top corner of the golf course, and then a long stroll down ancient footpaths enclosed between trees, bushes and hedges which will look delightful and at their best in spring and summer. They take you all the way back to Eaton village and your car park.

The walk is probably most suitable for well-behaved children, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled in summer, but in winter boots will be required, and there should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts in summer. On your route there are no facilities of any sort.
