We had been recommended this walk and although the weather didn’t promise to be good we thought we would give it a try. There is a free car park but unless you know the area you will need your sat nav to find it, if you follow directions for LL12 9HE then you will pass the car park which is sign posted. The area has some stunning scenery and even on a grey day we could still see quite far, on a nice day you can see as far as Liverpool. If you are a photographer then you will definitely like this walk as it has spectacular scenery in all directions (not that we could see that far the day we visited). The area is quite flat and open. It was very peaceful, there were other dog walkers around and cattle grazing though they were easily avoided. There are no markers but it is roughly a 2 mile circular walk.


The day we visited it was definately Welly day but Bert especially enjoyed running and jumping in the muddy puddles (although we did laugh when he face planted after not realising how big one puddle was).

On our way back we stopped at the Druid Inn pub it was nice enough but not specifically dog friendly. We sat outside with the dogs and there are undercover parts so we were warm, there was a good menu with vegetarian and vegan options, next time I think we will do a picnic. Was originally just going to give it 4 paws but the boys were proper shattered and slept all the way back and into the afternoon so bumped it up to five paws!
