This walk is a very long one, to give you an idea it is 6.53 miles and 14,592 steps and is a full day’s walk, if you are not into walking then please don’t try this, you can do it several ways.
Catch the 61/62 bus to High Bradfield and then catch the bus to pub2 and pub3 and from there you will be able to walk the rest, majority of the pubs are in the Hillsborough area.
Pub 1 – The Old Horns – this pub is at High Bradfield and is a Thwaites pub and a nice selection of ales, they also serve food and have a wonderful view. I caught the bus to this pub, it is best to walk back into Hillsborough from here.
Pub 2 – Nags Head Inn, this is a Bradfield brewery tap pub and serves all Bradfield ales for £2 a pint, which is a bargain and they also serve food, and have a beer garden plus a car park. From Pub1 to Pub2 is a long walk.
