Lovely walk through forest and moorland from Trentabank to Shutlingsloe.
Calculated time is computed with the distance, the height difference, and an average speed of 2.2 mph. For an intermediate walker, this time includes small breaks.
(D/A) Start the walk at the Trentabank Carpark and follow the path, which is well signposted, to the top of Shutlingsloe. This is quite a steep climb through the forest, across moorland and then a paved stairway to the top of the Shutlingsloe hill. Enjoy the views.
(1) Follow the path down to Clough Brook. This is quite a steep descent and quite slippery when wet. Follow the delightful footpath along Clough Brook until reaching Dingers Hollow Farm and turn left.
(2) Turn left into Standing Stone Road. Follow this road until you are back to the start of the walk.(D/A)
