Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

Just did this beautiful walk today on a gorgeous sunny Spring morning. It is a varied and peaceful walk with some fantastic views and lovely scenic spots. Mostly fairly gentle but has one steep climb to St Martha's church half-way through the route. There is free parking in a small car park at the start.
