Length: 6.4 mi • Est. 3 h 9 m
This is a circular walk commencing in Brewood (pronounced "brood") and following lanes past Chillington Hall before returning to Brewood via the canal towpath. The walk offers views of the local countryside and canals, and also of Chillington Hall in the distance. The walk is along quite a flat route for the most part. There are no challenging gradients. There are several stiles, but most of the fields are flat. Parts of the towpath can be muddy, even in dry weather. Some of the fields contain animals.Show more

Length: 7 mi • Est. 3 h 23 m
This is a circular walk, starting in Codsall village, heading out past Chillington Hall and then returning to Codsall. The trail encompasses views of fields and woodlands, and also takes you past Chillington Hall, a Grade I listed building. As this walk takes you through a few kinds of habitats, it is ideal for spotting flora and fauna. Kingfishers and Goldfinches have both been seen along this trail. Large sections of the walk take place on tarmac roads, but there are some sections that can be extremely muddy so stout walking boots are essential. You may be sharing some of the fields with grazing animals. There are several stiles along the route and some parts (including one fairly long stretch) follow the edge of main roads that have no pavement, so take care of traffic.Show more

A circular pub walk from The Oakley Arms near Brewood in Staffordshire. The Oakley Arms serves fine food, wines and local beer in the spacious dining areas or the beautiful terrace overlooking the lake. The walking route explores the local area, crossing arable fields and following quiet tracks and lanes to visit Belvide Reservoir and the former Black Ladies Priory along the way. There is plenty of wildlife to enjoy, including a wealth of wildfowl on the reservoir which is managed as a nature reserve. The walk is relatively flat with just a few gentle slopes. There are no stiles or kissing gates on route, just a few single bridle gates and one sleeper bridge to negotiate. The paths can be muddy or waterlogged at times and they are also rutted and uneven in part so good boots are a must. The paths across the arable fields are very narrow and sometimes obscured altogether by the crops, so you may need to divert around the field edges. You will cross one field which may be holding sheep so take particular care with dogs at this point. There are a couple of stretches of road walking along quiet country lanes, so take care of any traffic. NOTE: The footpath signposting in this area is very intermittent so use the live GPS map on the AllTrails App to help with navigation. Allow 2.5 hours. Show more

A circular, relatively flat walk through farmland and small woods using paths and bridleways with some short stretches along country lanes. Some of the footpaths can be particularly muddy so boots or wellies are essential. There are several stiles along the route and as much of the walk is through farmland, there are a lot of animals in the fields, particularly horses and cows. In one field walkers are warned that a bull is sometimes present as are cows and calves.Show more

Length: 5.2 mi • Est. 2 h 30 m
The Codsall, Gunstone and Bilbrook 'Butterfly' walk is a figure of eight route the outline of which looks very much like a butterfly. The circular nature of the walk means that it can be joined at any point and if followed completely will bring you back to the point at which you started. It is also suitable for those holidaying on the Shropshire Union Canal as it touches the canal. Additionally, it is easily cut short or completed in sections. The route uses paths and bridleways along which there are many stiles and kissing gates. Some of the horse paddocks have electric fencing which you will need to unhook (via the insulated handles) to pass through. There are also some short stretches along country lanes, but these are either very quiet or have broad verges along which to walk. There are a lot of animals on the route including horses, sheep and a few cows. There are several signs asking walkers to keep dogs on a leash. Most paths are well trodden and signposted, but can be boggy in parts and overgrown in other places.Show more
