Gill Banks and the Flan Walk

Step by Step

  • Start at The Gill
  • Take the path that goes out of The Gill following the stream. Can’t see the stream? Stand with your back towards the public toilets and start walking.
  • Follow this for about half a mile until you reach a gate that comes out on Old Hall Road

Here you have two choices:

1 .

  • Go through the gate (* bear in mind there is occasionally a bull in the field – see if the sign is on the gate. Continue at your own risk. *)
  • Follow the path keeping the wall on your right, you will come up to a gate with some trees by it
  • Go through the gate and then climb up the hill for a view over town
  • Take in the view and then make your way back down the same way, down to the road
  • Continues below


  • Head down Old Hall Road until you reach Mowings Lane
  • Turn right and follow the road until your reach Garden Terrace
  • Go right when you reach Stanley Street and you will get back to the Gill


Difficulty – Flan hill is quite steep, the rest is gradual
