A delightful short circular walk along, for the most part, excellent footpaths well used by local dog walkers as well as the visiting hikers. There are only two stiles, and you will probably be able to walk around the second. The best feature is the return route along the ancient, enclosed winding footpath with a multitude of wildflowers all along the whole length of it; excellent in summer but in winter these well used paths can become quite boggy in places. There are no steep slopes to climb, but you will come across a short flight of old stone steps up the bank of a lane. It has a good handrail to help you up, and you get excellent views across the valley as you follow the footpath along the edge of a field. It's very unlikely that you will meet any farm animals.

The walk is suitable for children, senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. Suitable footwear will be anything flat soled, but boots will be best in winter or after a long spell of heavy rain, 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; but there are possibly toilets in the church, and certainly at the Inn. If you book in advance, you should be able to get a good meal with a drink there, an excellent finish to a good walk.
