Sandy-Everton Circular Walk
This walk explores the countryside between the market town of Sandy and the village of Everton, following part of the Greensand Ridge Walk. It crosses the two large estates of Hasells Hall and Woodbury. Although much of the area is intensively farmed, the walk also passes through pasture, parkland and woodland, offering fine views, and past a number of interesting features.
Waymarking: Look out for the circular route waymarks which indicate the direction of the walk. Yellow arrows are used on public footpaths, blue on public bridleways.
Between Points 2 and 3, and 5 and 6, the circular route follows the Greensand Ridge walk, which is waymarked with special signs, posts and discs, some bearing a muntjac deer symbol.
Footwear: Some of the paths can be wet and muddy, particularly after heavy rain, so strong, waterproof footwear is recommended.
Sandy High Street car park is the suggested starting point and the walk is described in a clockwise direction from there. However, you can begin at any other point and walk in either direction.
Distance: 10 miles with options of 7.2miles and 8.2 miles. Time: 5 hours for 10m walk.
Surface types: You will walk across a range of surfaces from hard and firm with no stones variable surfaces with loose stones, to grass or uncultivated earth paths with ruts.
The walk is stile free.
Public Toilets: Located on Sandy High Street.
Refreshments: There is a pub, The Thornton Arms, in Everton. Sandy has cafes and shops.
