This is a revised version following the diversion of one of the public footpaths on the route.
This is not a particularly short walk and it crosses open country. Surfaces are mostly good, though there are some rutted tracks, and irregular surfaces under tall grasses in the summer. Clothing should be appropriate to these conditions, and, as always, to the weather. Walking boots with good ankle support are strongly recommended to help cope with surface irregularities.
The video shows views along this walk. 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.
