Type of Walk

'The actual Boundary Walk uses private land and is only used once every seven years with the kind permission of the landowners. It must not therefore be used at any other time. The Boundary Way described ... therefore used the nearest public rights of way to the boundary - on footpaths, lanes and, by necessity in places, on roads.'
