A delightful walk suitable for fit 'C' walkers. Green lanes, woods, cereal fields and a couple of lovely villages, great views of Capesthorne Hall. Some quiet lane walking. Will be verymuddy after rain. This is a great area for bird watching, birds seen on walk: Snow Bunting, Red Wings, Fieldfares, Common Buzzard and too many ducks to mention (bring plenty of bread to feed the ducks and geese).
