This footpath provides spectacular panoramic views across the Vale of Belvoir and offers the opportunity for circular walks from the local villages of Bottesford and Normanton.
The surrounding farmland is managed under a Countryside Stewardship Agreement with the primary objective of enhancing the wildlife interest. The arable field margins buffer the adjacent species-rich hedgerows and water courses and provide excellent nesting and feeding habitat for farmland birds, small mammals and insects. Snipe are also known to overwinter in the wetter grass margins.
