A 3 mile moorland walk in a landscape steeped in history, from thousands of years ago to a folly commemorating the Reform Act. It's a great walk at any time of the year.

Fabulous walk with lots to offer
You start off in a little wooded area, reaching paths lined with beautiful, purple heather. The scenery is delightful. The nine sisters folklore entertaining. The cork stone can be climbed using the iron foot rests, if you’re adventurous!
There’s plenty to see and although a popular spot, you can walk pretty much without seeing many people. There are sheep here though, and unless you can keep your hound under close control, we recommend a lead - as the lambs were not always visible because of the heather and bracken.
We stopped off for coffee at the Druid Inn where we were met by an incredibly friendly lady, who provided us with a lovely Americano and made a huge fuss of our Sproodle, much to his delight!
Overal, a great walk with fabulous directions - which we love, because we usually get lost and on this occasion, we didn’t!

19.2.13 Brilliant walk, views and directions. Dogs off lead all the way except on road. If you don't want the steep climb at the beginning, spaces in car park opposite Quarry Offices. Druid Inn seems to be undergoing refurbishment, therefore was closed. Would recommend this walk.
