16 February                         Chilton Street   Map

This walk starts off along the River Stour and then follows a very rural path past the Upper Common, across arable land and back down to Chilton Street.  There is a footpath alongside the road that leads you back through the Town of Clare, with the option of a variation taking you behind the Chilton Stream.  There are some wonderful views during this walk.
