Start and end are okay but too much of this route is along pretty boring roads - lots of missed opportunities to take more interesting footpaths.

Parts of the walk was quite nice, I.e., through old parts of town, riverside, around cathedral. There was a bit on the side of an A road coming into town that wasn’t so good. I’d say about half of the loop was interesting.
