A shorter walk than the main Slindon circle. Great for young children and those looking for a pleasant walk.

This is an update of the current situation of a walk around the walls. walls leading to Eastgate Bridge, Northgate Bridge and Southgate Bridge are both under construction at present (updated 5/6/20 - see images), hence my diversion. A lovely walk around the 2 mile circuit around part of the walls of Chester with lots to see and do. Please note: There are only small sections of the walls that do have ramps for people with disability.

Lovely walk. Fantastic views from the top and on the way down. Anti clockwise probably easier than clockwise. No cows. Just sheep.

Not too far from home, this walk brightened up a grey day. Lots of open spaces, mixed with narrower paths alongside the river. Not too much people traffic, friendly locals and an added ruin bonus..

I managed to complete it in 6 days. In winter some parts are muddy and sometimes the signage is bad or there are road works and you need to look at the map. But the Capital Ring goes through forest and ponds and reservoirs and it is amazing to walk through places which are the unknown. Lovely way to discover nature in the city.

A great trail.. maps are accurate to 99% but the deviations werent too much so it was fun. Views are amazing and the terrain variations (fields, river banks, sonning village) everything is worth enjoying enroute. Best recommended time of year - Summer Best recommended time of day - early mornings (sun rise over shiplake farms, birds chirping along thames, swans at their best in the fresh golden sun) Made a short video of best things we saw.

Starting from the causeway (the road at the top end), we walked along the raised mud wall alongside of the river. Beautiful. Windswept. Sun kissed. Wild. Very few other people. As we got to West Mersea there’s some cute houses and oyster/seafood places. Keep walking and you get to the busy part, the beach, shingle/sand. Not the prettiest.. with beach huts. We turned around there and walked back the way we came.

Lovely long walk specifically loved the water front and parks very long but worth it

Very good directions and a varied shortish walk. Not too sure about walking in fields with a fair few horses so 1st time around decided against it. Today the horses were in a different field so got to enjoy the walk without any concern. The horse paddock mentioned before Byworth had 3 lovely horses lurking by the stile and even after offering an apple between them couldnt ease our way in so just follow the road down and at the bend turn into the charming village of Byworth.

We loved this walk. Took a picnic and had it at the top with such beautiful views. A great mix of beautiful rolling hills of South Downs, woodlands and forests. We took our dog and he loved it. We had to keep him on a lead for a short time when going through some fields with sheep and right at the end for a couple of minutes when on the road walking back to the car. 10/10 and we will do it again soon!

Lovely walk through the cute town of Mersea, the fields in the surrounding countryside and the lovely beach.

Tracked route with some bridges and paths. It isn’t 5kms but you can add more distance in if you track your route. We went round twice with two kids (7 & 3) and a pushchair and it took a little over an hour (including coffee break). Nice little walk tracking the river.

Lovely walk for a sunny day in the summer. It can get quite busy (relatively), as the walk has many entry/exit points and is popular with locals. Nice and varied terrain with a mix of pasture, woodland and town - all close to the rivers though. Not ideal for pushchairs as there are a lot of stiles. Plenty of scope for picnics

A lovely walk with lots of different scenery, wooded and open fields, and stays nice a flat throughout the five miles. Quite a popular destination, also with some busy roads that you need to cross so if you are wanting a quiet walk then this perhaps isn’t for you.

Can anyone advise why there are no way point descriptions on this trail? Id like to do this walk tomorrow?

beautiful track. Nice seafood stall and restraurants

We started the walk by the River Alde and the Marsh. The footpath there is great and probably the most enjoyable part of the hike. Cutting through the cow pasture was a blast for my daughter... but the rest of the walk wasn’t anything special. The walk through Aldeburgh was nice as well, but not spectacular. Also, a little crowded through town considering COVID-19.

Very good short walk. You walk though the farm lane and woodlands and the village. There is not a car park. Dogs loved the walk.

A very pleasant walk through parts of South Birmingham I’m not too familiar with. West Heath Park is a bit dull to be honest - just a wide open space with grass and a few trees, but the walk there was very enjoyable as was the walk back alongside the River Rea - don’t get too excited it’s more of a stream than a river. We completed it in an hour and 40 mins and felt like we’d earned our Sunday roast.

Perfect for families, stroller friendly! Was getting busy when we left so I’d say get there early if you can!

Great varied trail. Beautiful start in gorgeous Petworth. Convenient with big pay and display.

Lovely trail with varied terrain of open fields, forests and golden pastures.

Great walk with the dog. Very quiet aswell saw like 2 people the whole walk if that’s your thing!
