Description

(D/A) From the front of the hotel, cross the road and walk a short distance to the left to Pulford church. Enter the churchyard and walk behind the church to view the grassy motte of Pulford Castle. Return to the road and retrace your steps passing the hotel, and crossing the Pulford Brook into Wales. Continue along the road into Lavister village, ignoring the turning on the right to Burton Green. Pass the Nag’s Head pub and cross the end of Roselands Court.

(1) Beyond a former chapel on the left, turn left into Darland Lane/Lôn Darland. Pass a number of turnings to left and right then, when the road bends right, turn left into Darland Lane.

(2) Cross Lôn Pippin/Pippin Lane and then, when the road narrows, turn left into a track (a de facto path – but not a formal right-of way – leads over a stile by a gate on the right of the entrance and then winds pleasantly through woodland parallel to the track with a large pond on the right; if you take this option, turn left just beyond the pond to return to the track).

(3) At a gate at the end of the houses leave the track through a stile on the left. Follow the path beyond (entering a former golf course), which swings left and subsequently follows an open belt of trees then briefly follows the edge of the trees surrounding a housing estate to the left. Beyond the trees walk straight ahead, parallel to a stream on the left, aiming just to the left of a telegraph pole. When you reach a metalled track, turn left over a bridge with brick parapets to return to the road. Turn right and walk back along the road to the Grosvenor Hotel.(D/A)
