A circular walk from Fradley Junction in Staffordshire. This route explores the countryside which includes farmland and villages as well as sections along the Trent and Mersey Canal (at the start of the walk) and the Coventry Canal (towards the end). There is plenty of wildlife to see along the way. There is a canal visitor centre that is worth exploring, however it is run by volunteers and times of opening vary. At the junction there are several listed buildings, these are: Cottages, Warehouse, Crossover bridge and lock and on the Wharf you will find the original Stables, Carpenters shop and Blacksmiths (which now form part of the cafe and visitor centre). On the opposite side of the canal you will find the award winning Nature Reserve, this is well worth a look for all the family to enjoy. The route will take you along a mixture of tarmac surfaces, towpaths and footpaths across farmers fields. Some of the fields are likely to be holding horses and sheep so take particular care with dogs. Parts of the route can be muddy, depending on the time of year. You will need to negotiate a few kissing gates plus six stiles. Approximate time 2.5 hours.

Five of us chose a dry, pleasant day to do the walk. Starting off along the canal, waving to the passing boats, past and around the cricket club, passing through lovely villages and fields with horses, along a few lanes and back along the canal, over the bridge and into the caravan park's cafe for a cuppa and a chat. not too taxing, no steep hills, just a pleasant walk. Thank you for organising.
