Walk Details
This walk starts at the National Trust Longshaw Tea Room. With your back to the tea-room, walk down the path, turn left and follow path to a gate. Through this gate you’ll see yew trees and two millstones. Go through the gate slightly to the left onto the main drive. Walk along the main drive, between twin gateposts and past a companion stone. Continue past the crossroads, marked by a four-way wooden signpost, and go through a double gate. Go past another gate on your right and carry on until you reach a stile on your right. You are now following the old packhorse route.

Look out for pied flycatchers in the woods, which return from Africa every April to nest. The rangers and volunteers put up and look after nestboxes for them and will be checking on them throughout spring and summer.
