Description

(D/A) On leaving The Dog, turn left and follow the lane past a row of terraced houses. About 60 yards after passing a telephone kiosk, the lane turns sharply to the right. Leave the lane here and pass through a facing gate to follow a macadam drive between conifer trees. The drive leads towards Sycamore Farm. Go through a small gate on the right, which is close by the entrance gate to the farm, and follow a hedge that skirts around the farm.

(1) Where the hedge on the left finishes, turn left and cross a field to go over a double stile, in the same general direction as before, and then go over a stile in a crossing fence. Bear slightly right now and walk across a field corner to go over a stile, which is set in a fence to the left of a large dwelling. Follow a straight macadam drive past dwellings and, after about 300 yards, arrive at a crossing lane.

(2) Turn right along the lane. After only 60 yards leave the lane to the left and then turn left again to go through a small wooden gate, which gives access to a narrow hedged-in path; where you will find a tall conifer hedge on the immediate right. Where this hedge finishes, go over a stile to enter a field.

(3) Keep along the field edge where, over to the right, about 1⁄2 a mile away, can be seen a tall water tower - a well-known landmark in the area. Pass over a stile at the field corner and follow a well-defined path through scrubland. The path leads to a crossing drive. Walk straight across the drive and keep along a field edge where, on your left, there is a fence interspersed with large trees. After half a mile, go over a stile at the side of a gate and arrive at a crossing lane.

(4) Turn left and follow the lane-side pavement. Pass ‘Ye Olde Park Gate Inn’ and keep forward at the next junction, in the direction of Peover Heath. Keep on, past a minor lane which goes off to the right, and shortly after passing Cinder Lane arrive back at The Dog.(D/A)
