Excellent walk, instructions nearly all very simple to follow. Just a few tips for the instructions. In general, the short cut with typing in pink/purple on the route instructions (4 and 5), came out as black even though I printed in colour! This confused me as the second paragraph in (5) didn't make sense as I wasn't following the shortened route. In (1), the left turn turn on to the permissive path was waymarked with "Circular walk 1.3m" and the waymarkers for the circular walk are blue (makes the route very easy to follow). In (4), the farmer has diverted the footpath with two waymarked kissing gates and an enclosed path around the side of the farmyard. You still come out at the end of the farmyard but the possibility of mixing with cattle may now be non-existent. The cattle were in the sheds and so my dogs and I were safe. Thank you for sharing this walk.
