Lovely walk and area but would agree with the comments regarding the directions especially point 1 and the tree shrouded pasture-edge which threw us a bit. Would do this walk again, the Lion Inn is well worth a visit good food and hospitality.

Can I say first that the walk is worth four stars? However the description falls well short of that to be expected for a Ramblers’ Route. I have checked over twenty such routes and walked others around the country and can say that this walk has the worst instructions of any that I have seen. On route I met a couple also doing this walk and they were in full agreement with me.

Narative not always that clear. e.g Tree shrouded pasture edge . Nice walk, but too many lanes & woods for me.
