This walk uses mostly paths through open fields and some tracks through farms. Most reasonably fit walkers should not have any difficulty with this route. Some paths are a little difficult to find; don't take some of the arrow waymarkers too literally, as some are way off the mark, particularly the one at Waymark 12.

The Pub at Parwich `The Sycamore` has reasonable food and some Real ales, in season. Including Robinson`s Old Tom, at 8.4% (winter time for this one) it is not a good idea for the return journey to partake of this too much. They also serve Coffee and Teas for the more sensible to avoid the dehydration that alchohol causes. Like most carpeted Pubs they do like you to remove muddy boots at the door. Carrying sandals might be a good idea.

You pass through The 'Model' village of Tissington on the return. This village is famed for its well dressings (a Derbyshire tradition) where the well is decorated with a religious scene made out of clay and flower petals. Tissington has five wells.
The steepest climb is after leaving the Tissington Estate, but it is well worth it for the panoramic views from the top (Waymark 30).

The final part is along a quiet lane which passes through a pasture in the the care of the National Trust.
