Parking, roads and amenities
Chipping ticks all the right boxes for starting a walk, there’s a car park, toilets, a cafe and a couple of pubs, plus a village store. Chipping is also a lovely little village and well worth a look.
Elevation and terrain
The highest point is roughly 230m (755ft) and there’s a few small climbs.
The terrain is mainly road, farm tracks and a small part is just grass – which was a little boggy. If it’s been raining you’ll need decent footwear.
Park up where you can in Chipping and set off up Church Raike, which is between the church and cafe. Take a left where the road forks and carry on to Fish House Lane. Here you need to take a right towards Wolfen Mill and then left at the T-Junction, which will take you towards Peackock Hey Farm and Saddle End Farm.
Eventually you’ll get to the end of the road at Burnslack Farm, take a right here along the farm track to Lickhurst Farm. Passing through the farm towards the road leads you to an old BT Phone Box on the road at the Whitewell Estate. This road is effectively a crossroads and as it was right on the crease of my map it gave me a head scratch or two, so just make sure you take the road opposite Dinkling Green Farm. There’s an almost immediate right towards the cottages at Higher Greystoneley and this track leads you to Knot Hill, which is well worth a stop off.
When the track meets the road, take a right towards Leagram Mill and head back to Chipping along the road.
