The walk goes south from Ruyton on bridleways to reach Nesscliffe Country Park. A circuit is made, visiting a huge Iron Age hill-fort, Oliver's Point (reputedly Cromwellian) and the headquarters of a 15th Century outlaw in a sandstone cave. Further bridleways then lead to a signposted viewpoint and a gradual descent on a ridge back to the start, passing on the way a tablet commemorating the local Dad's Army of WWII. There are no stiles and the views are extensive from many points.
