Length

3.5 kms – about 1 leisurely hour, starting at the site of the old Windbound Pub, Shepperdine.

Under foot

The walk follows public footpaths with short sections of quiet country lanes. Although the lanes are quiet, do take care on them as they are narrow in places. You may encounter cyclists and horse riders as well as cars. Please note: in winter and wet weather, wellies are a must for this walk!

Food and drink

There are no refreshment stops on this route. Bring your own snacks.

Parking

At the site of the old Windbound Pub, Shepperdine Road, Shepperdine. Please park sensibly.

Respect, Protect, Enjoy

Always follow the Countryside Code.

Park sensibly – don’t block gates or drives. Leave gates as you find them. Leave farm animals and machinery alone.  If you think an animal’s in distress, alert the farmer. Keep to the public right of way.

Leave no trace of your visit and take your litter home. Keep your dog under effective control and pick up after your pet – dog mess can harm livestock. It is good practice to keep your dog on a lead around livestock; however, if cattle or horses try to chase your dog, it’s safer for both of you to let your dog off the lead to run away.

Plan ahead, dress for the weather, and wear appropriate clothing. You may want to bring snacks and water on your walk. Be aware you may not have a mobile signal in places during your walk.
