The walk starts from the car park in Dunsop Bridge. The objective should
be the Parkers Arms in Newton. The path to Newton is particularly pleasant
passing by hill farms and their outlying barns with views to the south over
the Hodder valley. An initial gentle climb to Beatrix is followed by a descent
to Rough Syke, and then again a climb to Gamble Hole Farm. Newton is seen
in the valley below.
The return from Newton is on the flat. For the most part the path follows
close to the Hodder or otherwise over pasture.
