Distance 6miles / 10 Km. We will stop at the Carr Mill Carvery, however on Sundays, ordering a meal may take a long time so a drink with a packed lunch is advised.

Although mostly a flat walk much of the pathway is basic soil surface so can be muddy  / slippery in wet weather.  Suitable walking boots are required and care taken to look out for crossing tree roots.
