This circular walk has many more interesting features than are suggested by viewing the map. Once off the roads the route is highly recommended for its interesting variety. There are wide open meadows, very delightful and popular woods, a shallow and jagged edged sandstone valley, and a long flight of rustic steps to climb. As the locality is quite hilly there are a few steep slopes to climb. The return route will take you along a long lane to the finish, but it's very rural and mainly downhill. There are no stiles to climb, but numerous kissing gates to pass through. In some meadows there may be horses or cows.

Probably more suitable for older children (as a high-speed road needs crossing several times), senior citizens and anyone in-between. Excellent for dogs, but hopeless for wheelchairs and buggies. The paths are often very uneven and rough so suitable footwear will be boots, but there should be no problems for anyone wearing shorts. On your route there is a garden café quite near the start, numerous bench seats and a general store which sells hot coffee near the end. There is also food and drinks in the pub at the start and finish. If you book in advance, you should be able to get a good meal with a drink; an excellent finish to a good walk.
