An easy, pleasant ramble on the Leeds/Wakefield border including sections of the Leeds Country Way and the Wakefield Way.

No livestock except for a few sheep. Five stiles.

Muddy tracks from recent downpours make this walk more strenuous than its "leisurely" grading would suggest, but it's a nice round and splendidly waymarked.
