A fairly easy walk for most of the route, without any really steep climbs and only one descent of any note along a green lane track.
Most of the route is along field-paths and green lanes, though some sections of road-walking are required, with one section beside a quite busy, narrow road.

The upper section of Lathkill Dale on the return is probably the most demanding, though most of the valley has gravel paths beside the river. Some sections can become flooded and the path washed away. The area above the cave from which the river emerges is rocky for a short section. Though not difficult, this section does require care.

The central point of the walk in Sheldon offers a walker-friendly, compact village pub, The Cock and Pullet. They have a good-value menu and some interesting beers, usually Bass and Timothy Taylor's 'Landlord'. The interior has some carpets, so covering muddy boots is appreciated.

The pub opened in the mid-1990s, ending the 'dry' period in Sheldon; the former pub which closed over thirty years ago, is the building next door and above.
