The walk uses public footpaths, roadways, and a byway. This is not a short walk, it crosses open country, and surfaces can be uneven and rutted. Clothing should be appropriate to these conditions, and, as always, to the weather. In summer some footpaths can be covered by long grass concealing uneven or pitted ground and care should be taken. Walking boots with good ankle support are strongly recommended.

This page was revised in 2017 for footpath diversions.

The video shows views along this walk. It crosses the busy B184 and summer hedgerows can obscure the view of traffic. Please take special care here.

Please note that some of the public footpaths are blazed through the middle of cornfields. They can become very difficult to cross, at least temporarily, after the harvest if/when the stubble is ploughed up. Walking conditions do vary over time and features may have become unsafe (e.g. a broken stile) and these should be avoided. In such cases it is worth taking a look around to see if a detour has been provided that can be used in safety.

Note: the image can be enlarged by clicking on the symbol in the top right hand corner, and the scale expanded or shrunk by use of the sliding scale on the left (or of a mouse wheel). Of the maps in the dropdown menu "More maps", the OpenStreetMap and OpenCycleMap are particularly useful.

For technical reasons the altitude table shows levels that are erroneously low for part of the last mile of the walk.
