Overview

The walk begins on the flat but there are a couple of climbs, the main one being Lewesdon Hill, and one short but sharp downhill stretch. Needless to say water and mud will feature in a few places. Toilets at the carpark where walk starts and ends. Picnic, no dogs.

The walk starts at Yarn Barton Car Park. Payment by cash, card or phone app. Its only £4 for all day. Places are available in the town, but please park respectfully. I will start the walk from near the carpark entrance.
