Getting There

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.

Baggeridge Country Park is located just West of Gospel End, on the A463. Leave the roundabout on the A449, signposted Baggeridge Country Park. Alternatively, take the A463 from the nearby town of Sedgely. The entrance is clearly signposted. Drive down through the woods for about 300 yards, where you'll find a Pay & Display car park - 1hr is £1.60, full day is £2.60. Telephone number: 01902 882605 Approximate postcode: DY3 4HB
