To Kirby Hill and back

A moderate to easy walk: 5k – 1:15 hrs

Start at the phone box as usual.
The walk follows the higher route to the east and through the sandstone quarry

Instead of turning left, down the hill, turn right and walk up the unpaved road up the hill.

turn left here

At the top, turn left with MOD ranges on your right.

no entry

Continue past Grove Gill House and turn left down the bridleway (a grassy track).
Go through a couple of field gates and onto a farm track.

a bit disconcerting when you find this sign on the gate as you leave the field in question

Through another gate and onto the road.

well camouflaged entrance to farm track if you are walking this route in reverse

Head west to The Lodge and follow the route back to Gayles Hall along the lower drove track.
