My walking buddy and I did this walk today and thoroughly enjoyed it. For the most part, easy walking really, with lots of flat level paths. A bit of a climb at the beginning to get the old heart pumping which we need every now and then. Lots of photographic opportunities to be had so will be going back with my camera soon. There is however an error at point says goright over a stile or through the gate onto the bridleway. However, it's go LEFT. over the stile... And this is evident on the map as well.
