pub walk

A circular pub walk from the Hand and Trumpet in Wrinehill, Staffordshire. The Hand and Trumpet is a true classic with old floors, rugs, open fires, old furniture and a sizeable garden with a great deck. The walking route performs a simple circuit around the surrounding pretty, undulating countryside crossing a range of fields and pastures and passing through the neighbouring village of Betley. The walk includes several steady climbs and descents and almost all of the paths are across fields crop fields, water meadows and pastures which can get very muddy so good waterproof boots are a must (along with a change of shoes for the pub!). There are a few gates plus 19 stiles to negotiate (including several fully enclosed stiles and one ladder stile that dogs may need a lift over). You are likely to come across horses, sheep and cattle grazing in the various fields so take care with dogs. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.
