The walk is approximately 7.2 miles (can be shorter depending on conditions) and mainly level. There is a short pull up into Billinge where we can have lunch. 
A pub and an ice cream shop are available for refreshments and a park to sit in. We return via the Hill which provides spectacular views in all directions, leading us back through an old wood and into the water park.
You should bring plenty of fluid.
