Description

(D/A) Turn right out of The Dog car park and walk along Well Bank Lane until you meet a crossroads known as 4 Lane Ends. A signpost points towards Peover Hall where we will take a left, sticking to the signed footpath and entering the estate by a stout wooden gate.

(1) Just past a stable, a gate takes us forward along an avenue of trees leading to a stile between two ponds. Head across parkland to an ornamental gate and turn right, then follow a path past St Lawrence’s Church.

(2) Go through a stand of mature trees until you come to a stile. Leave the trees and turn left, then shortly after take a right over a second stile. Keep along the fence on your right, and then enter a copse when you come to a barrier. Exit by another stile, keeping in the same direction. At the next stile keep left on a well-defined track towards an iron estate gate beside a pond. Go through the gate and follow the dead-straight track to meet the A50.

(3) We avoid the busy road by turning right onto Stocks Lane. The pub on the right is the famous Whipping Stocks, an old coaching inn. Cross to the pavement opposite and walk along Stocks Lane past the entrance to Radbroke Hall, a Barclays Bank building.

(4) Just past the exit, look for a footpath sign on the left leading to a rutted track. On leaving the track go through a metal kissing gate in the left hand hedge, where you will reach a footpath sign. Take a second kissing gate to change direction by going right. Keep to the hedge until you see a gap through to the next field, where the farmer has left a way forward. We join a bridleway between hedges, which comes to a lane opposite a nature reserve known as Lower Moss Wood.

(5) Turn right heading towards Blease Farm, but branch off to the left before reaching it, onto a tarmac lane. This lane bends to the right, before coming to a bench with a signpost beside it. Take the green causeway between two fields to reach a gap in the hedge, where you will find another stile that gives access to another bridleway.

(6) Turn right here to find yourself back on Stocks Lane.

(7) Turn left and head towards Park Gate Inn. Walk a little further and you will come to the crossroads, 4 Lane Ends, again. Head straight over onto Well Bank Lane, and follow the road until you come to The Dog.(D/A)
