This circular walk starts off in Frieth village. We park on the road side near the kissing gate which takes you directly into the fields. This is marked on the map near Ellery Rise Road.
Cut across the field, through another gate until you get to some woodland. For the direct route turn right within the field and continue tracking the edge of the field until the path narrows towards the road. Alternatively you can cut into the corner of the woodland where, at the time of writing, there was a small rope swing and hidden in the woodland there is a abandoned tractor/vehicle which our boys enjoyed clambering over. This said, we were unsure if this is technically allowed….
Continue back out of the woodland into the field to continue the walk following the route below. After crossing a road and another field you will enter woodland again. We cut the corner at this point to shorten the route. After walking up hill across a field you will hit a quiet lane. Walk along this lane for only a short distance before re-joining Frieth Village itself. This is a quiet pleasant walk back to the car through the village.
