This circular walk begins and finishes in Tilton on the Hill. There is a pub and village shop in this village if you are searching for food. This village and the next, Lowesby, have beautifully ornate churches built of the local orange stone. The one in Lowesby is particularly beautiful, standing as it does next to a perfectly manicured village green.

The walk soon leads you into a secluded valley through grazed fields. You drop down to a disused railway line and then into Lowesby, where the trail leads you out in front of the magnificent Lowesby Hall. Returning through mixed fields, the path gradually rises to a high point which again affords spectacular views across the valley.

The return into Tilton brings you in through the older part of the village and the churchyard. All in all, not a bad way to spend part of the day.

This is a good walk in lambing season but you need walking boots and it may be nice to start in Lowesbury and then have Tilton as half way as there is a great pub called the Rose and Crown open all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and they like walkers.
