This is quite an easy walk, mostly along green lanes and tracks. Some short sections of road-walking are required along quiet village roads. There is quite a network of tracks and lanes in this area, probably dating from pack-horse trails and saltways which form many roads and paths in the Peak District.

The paths are mostly easy to find and all stiles were present, though with one flooded section when walked.

The pub used on this walk, the Queen's Arms in Taddington, is walker-friendly as long as muddy boots are covered or left in the racks in the entrance. They offer a good-value menu with the set 'roast' meals being particularly good. They offer a few choice hand-pulled beers with Thwaites and Black Sheep offered on day of walk.

I agree with Julie about the classification being moderate. There are a lot of stiles and some of them will be challenging for some less agile people. One of our dogs also needed a lift over in a couple of places. Otherwise a very pleasant walk, and even though there is lots of livestock there is also plenty of opportunities to be off lead.

I would recommend considering reclassifying this walk as moderate. There is very little in the way of flat sections and some of the down hill is steep and stony. Worse than that though is the sheer number of steep stone stiles which, as a person with short legs, I found difficult to negotiate. We reckon the presence of the stiles added about half an hour to the duration of the walk.

Did this walk on 2nd June 18 & thoroughly enjoyed it. The instructions were very easy to follow & most unlike us - we never went wrong once. There was livestock in some fields but Jimmy my 10 year old boxer dog had ample opportunity to be off the lead.Timing the walk to perfection to be able to visit the pub in Taddington half way round which has a small amount of outside seating area. The web site advertises the opening time as 12.30 on a Saturday however it opened at 12 noon. Upon concluding the walk we popped in to the Bulls Head in Monyash (very close to starting point) & found this to be a charming country pub with lots of outside seating, busy with a lovely atmosphere, a good pint & a decent bowl of chips readily served. All in all a top walk/day & one i will revisit. Thank you Paul for an excellent walk.

At waypoint number 6 the path no longer passes through the farm, but has now been diverted around to the left with new stiles.

This is the first map/ walk I have downloaded. Picked up the walk in Flagg and enjoyed walking the circular route back to Flagg. The directions were excellent and comments regarding the Queens in Taddington could not be bettered. The pub is wecoming and hiking boot friendly with a great atitude to walkers - muddy or otherwise (or is that the boots?). Food menu was varied with dishes ranging from Stuffed Guinea Fowl, Steak and Stilton Pie to Sausage and Mash, all dishes were beautifully cooked, presented and were good value for money. The real ale was excellent with a variety of local brews from Barnsley Bitter to the Skipton Brewery Copper Dragon. All in all a good day out with a "Walkingworld friend" to guide you from start to finish.

My husband and myself felt in need of a relatively short fairly easy walk to walk off the excesses of Christmas.This walk fitted the bill perfectly--stunning scenery,well written and easy to follow.We will be taking more notice of Mr Bridgett's walks in future--well done!
