Map of walk  5 miles

The walk starts at Bulls Cross, goes down and then steeply up to the other side of the valley, though woods and nature reserves to Swift’s Hill, with lovely views. We took a detour to the Woolpack for lunch, then resumed the walk back to Bull’s Cross.

It was a a lovely sunny day, and the lake on the Slad Brook had a lovely reflection.
