This short walk, one of the Mortimer Country Bus Walks, connects the villages of Orleton and Luston. Orleton makes an interesting starting point, with some old buildings. You then pass through farmland on the way to Luston. Both start and finishing points are on the same bus line, so it can be done in the opposite direction if preferred.
