This is a moderate plus walk - the plus is because it involves 2 short, but steep ascents.
Be prepared to clamber over a locked gate. On the recce, the pathway was blocked by a dense growth of nettles and brambles.
Note the earlier start time. This is because it is an 8 mile walk and we need to get back to the pub by 2pm in order to get lunch. The pub will open at 09:15 to allow us time to order from the blackboard menu inside.
No need for an early start really.....the group walked at a blistering avg pace of 2.3mph and we were back in the pub by 1pm. Thank you to the 18 members who joined me and thanks to Pat O for backmarking. I'll put on another walk from here sometime!
