No problems for our two labradors: where there were stiles there were places for our dogs to pass through. However, the road walking in places and many of the fields having sheep, the dogs were on leads for large parts of the walk.

Enjoyable walk, albeit the track through Broadacres Fram was almost impassable due to deep mud. Wellies not walking boots required. The stiles and paths were easy to find.

The area around Broadacres Farm is virtually impassable now due to electric fences and ankle deep slurry - not recommended at present

Although the walks are not specifically designed with dogs in mind, it's pleasing to note from this comment that this particular walk poses no problems for those wishing to take their dogs with them.

We walked this walk on 28th June 2013. We were a little dubious after reading the previous comment. However, we found that almost all styles either had a pull up post to let the dogs through, a gate that opened next to it or a hole that the dogs could get through. There was one just one style where our boxer and labradoodle needed a 'helping hand'. The walk was a little overgrown in places, but easily passable. We would happily take our two active dogs on this walk again, they are used to being off the lead but could see how dogs who stay on the lead might have struggled in places. We had no problem with the electric fences and could not see that these would be a problem for dogs on leads. Joanne Jarman

The public footpath over the field between waymarks 4 and 5 has been ploughed out. This is now a very large field, which you can walk around with care, but there is no marking to identify the route.
