The walk starts at 10.00 am. It is a virtual figure-of eight. The full route is 5 miles but at two points in in the mid-section there is an option to take an easy-to-follow shortcut back to the cars to make a walk of either 3 miles or 4 miles. The varied scenery includes cultivated fields, open grassland, several streams, two woods and one small nature reserve. The terrain is flat, on good tracks/paths, with no stiles.
