A circular walk from the village of Hockley Heath, near Solihull in the West Midlands. This fairly easy walk would be very suitable for a short Sunday morning ramble, taking in a short stretch of the canal towpath and also passing two interesting landmarks, namely Packwood House and St. Giles Church, which are both worth a visit. There are no difficult sections on this walk and it is a very pleasant introduction to The Millennium Way. During the walk, you will enjoy a short section of the Millennium Way, the route being clearly marked by the distinctive black waymarkers. The route is relatively flat with just a few gentle gradients. You will need to negotiate a few kissing gates plus 4 stiles (all of which should be suitable for most dogs to manage). Whilst most of the fields are arable, you may come across livestock in a couple of the fields. There are a few sections of road walking, so take particular care of traffic. Allow 2 hours. The Millennium Way is a beautiful 100 mile walk in the heart of England, from Pershore in Worcestershire to Middleton Cheney in Northamptonshire. The route was created by the 41 Club as a community project, with something to offer every walker or rambler across Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire. This is one of 44 circular walks, each of which incorporates a section of the Millennium Way and is published in partnership with 41 Club.

Lovely walk but 60 % on the road. Not so great with a dog who wants to have a run!! :)
