Length: 4.3 mi • Est. 1 h 58 m
This is a circular walk from Wombourne in Staffordshire. The route follows the Staffs and Worcs Canal towpath before heading down country lanes and across fields and going past several historic buildings, before returning to the free car park. The walk has views of the local countryside, visits Smestow Brook at a couple of points and also takes in Bratch Locks. The walk is mostly flat, but there are many stiles to navigate and also some parts may be overgrown. Take care when walking down the country roads that have no pavement. There are also several fields with animals in them, so take care with dogs. There is a cafe, The Railway Cafe, at the start of the walk (closed Mondays except Bank Holidays).Show more

This walk takes you from Baggeridge car park up to the Toposcope, which affords views of the surrounding countryside, and then returns you via a different route to the car park. On a clear day, it is said that the Welsh Mountains can be seen from this point. The Toposcope is a flat disc with radii that will show you what is visible in a given direction, through 360°. It is useful to bring a pair of binoculars. Baggeridge Park has been awarded the Green Flag Award for thirteen consecutive years, and has a picnic area available. There is a tea shop, a children's play area, a miniature railway, a sensory garden and disabled toilets. Other nearby attractions include Penn Common and Himley Hall & Park. The walk is along a flat route at the beginning. However, there are a couple of quite steep flights of steps to and from the Toposcope. On the way back, there is a nature board detailing the local topography known as The Pit Mounds.Show more
