Brief Description The walk begins from the NT car park in Lyme Park (free parking if there is an NT member in each car). This is the best place to park to do the major climb early on and before lunch. Uphill from the car park to circle The Knott, then easy walking to West Parkgate. A fairly easy climb to Keepers Cottage, and then a steeper climb over the next mile to Sponds Hill (total ascent 600ft.). From there we walk along the ridge to Bowstonegate and continue to Lantern Wood, East Lodge and Bollinhurst Bridge. From there we walk alongside Bollinhurst and Horse Coppice Reservoirs to reach the main entrance to Lyme Park. Then via Cage Hill or through Elmerhurst Wood back to the car park.
