Walk Route Description
This is an easy walk on a wide flat surface. The walk is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs. It can also be added to walk 1591 (Ratby - Thornton walk) if people wish to make this walk longer. There is a refreshment lodge on the footpath. Car parking is available either end of Reservoir Road.
The route needs no explanation and all you need to decide is which way round you want to go. The path ahead is always clear and navigation is never a problem.
