Beautiful walk, thoroughly enjoyable. The route finding was very easy with Ramblers app, with the map setting on OS map. Note: there is a pub, only 5 to 10 minute walk from the route. The pub is Fox and Hounds at Christmas Common, just after point [2]. Where the instructions say 'pass a kissing gate onto a road', instead of turning 'left and following the road for 100 yards...', turn right as you come on the road after the kissing gate, and at the next fork in the road, keep to the right, and you will soon see the pub on your right. The pub is quaint. It has mixed reviews, but we had a very nice lunch with good, enthusiastic service.

Absolutely stunning walk and the bluebells were simply beautiful. The route is well signposted and really easy to follow using the Ramblers app. It took me two and a half hours walking time, not counting a lunch stop and many kodak moments.
