The Walk: The Walk: 3.25 miles (5.4 km), approx eight stiles (most you can walk around), one or two potentially muddy spots. A fairly gentle stroll on local footpaths & lanes, plus a couple of short road sections. Generally flat terrain but a little more undulating on last couple of stages with some nice views across to St Martha's. Kids' clues will be available on the day.
 
The Venue: Modern pub & grillhouse with large garden and play area. Beers from the Greene King stable. Very good selection of food, from the Sunday carvery or a la carte menu. If eating inside, you must book a table in advance on Sundays (not necessary if eating in the garden). There are specific sittings at 12 noon, 2.30pm and 5pm, so the first of these would be recommended for Quiz Walkers wanting lunch. Not quite so important to book if eating in the evening though. For reservations please call the pub on 01483 561765, also see their website at www.thepercyarms.net.
They do have a reasonable-sized car park at the side of the pub but the place gets extremely busy on Sundays so if you are coming by car they would be grateful if you could make use of the ample roadside parking while you're out on the actual walk.
