Notes about Village Walking

Most of our footpaths are rough walking, useable with care by the fully fit. Except when the ground is frozen solid or baked hard, walkers need wellingtons or walking boots.

Some of the stiles are a bit rickety but safe enough if used with care.

Some of the farm field gates are locked, so you have to climb over at the hinge end.

Under wet conditions, some of the walks through Duncliffe Wood are dangerous; extreme care is necessary

All walks include roads so dress for visibility.
Few if any walks from East Stour are suitable for those dogs which are too heavy to lift over stiles or who are unable to jump over them.

There are various walks to be discovered around our beautiful village,  use the link below to visit the county council web site that shows these public footpaths.
