An Overview of the route

This guide takes you on a circular tour starting and ending in the Mill Yard at Staveley. The 6.5 - 7 mile journey explores the hilly countryside to the east of the village and includes some pretty stretches of the river Kent. The target is the ruined farmhouse of Elf Howe and its surrounding countryside.

Time to complete: Allow between 2 and 3 hours to walk the route.

The state of the paths: Most of the paths around the route are well maintained but still expect some mud! Some of the paths are uneven or slippery. There are numerous stiles and gates. They could cause problems for those who are in a wheelchair or who are pushing a child in a buggy.

On road or off road: Of the 6.5 - 7 miles, about 2.5 miles is on tarmac roads, most of which are lanes used infrequently by motorists.

The terrain: The route is hilly for much of the journey. The total ascent is about 700 feet.

Finding your way round: This guide provides enough detail to follow the route. It's suggested that you read the full guide before setting out and refer to it at intervals during the walk. If you'd like to be guided round the route by the author see http://guidedscenicruns.weebly.com/. This is one of many that the author offers as a guided run or walk
