Great 9.7 mile hike though a variety of landscapes. Hills, ridges, woodland, farms, country villages and great views. Some elevation nothing too strenuous for an average Walker. Start near the candle workshop that has a cafe or you could do lunch at the Pheasant inn (gastropub). In places this follows the Sandstone trail. Note a small section is along a B road which no pavement and is quite busy car wise as it's a short cut between two main roads. Thoroughly enjoyed on a bright September day. You will meet other walkers but not too heavily trafficked in Autumn.
