Is road parking in the village centre, and we parked in a small free car park near the entrance to Sandhill Lane opposite The Carriage restaurant.


Quite a long section to get to the fields is on private roads but very quiet. Once off the roads it's quite hilly although not steep. Field paths were very muddy in parts but mainly quite flat, and once stepped section to cross the stream. No stiles, could of kissing gates only.


Whilst no signs on the main lakes they seem well maintained and are private land so I don't think dogs swimming would be welcome! On the back end of the loop there is a stream that runs alongside the path and we found one spot for Hank to easily access the water.

Author Review

From the village centre head up Sandhill Lane which is a quiet private road. Up the hill and round the corner take the first left fork in the road down Burliegh Lane.

At the end of this road the footpath goes off to the left of the white pillared gates, this path walloped out onto a field, head through there and at the end of the first field head right at the signpost going down the hill.

Where this path ends at the bottom of the hill you can go left or right, and this is basically the apex of a loop. We went right, and from here you walk through fields, between the lakes, and round the mill buildings back to this point via some streams and another small pond. The loop in this direction is pretty straight forward, keeping left at any junctions - there is lots of private land but is well signposted so not difficult to stick to the route.

It's a lovely walk, with very pretty scenery and we only passed one other walker. Most fields and paths are well fenced and Hank was only on the lead so much as we were unfamiliar with the area but only livestock we saw were in separate fields adjacent to the pathways.

Something not quite right?
