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.

You can plan a stop at All hallows church (recorded history from 1147) with time to look around, or drink your coffee, or both. The walk returns by way of Gryce Hall and Standinghurst Farm. The route is a mixture of fields (assume muddy at any time of year), paths and minor roads, with the usual stiles, but no really steep inclines.
