This circular walk begins at Sandwell Park Farm. Via footpaths through woodland and by ponds, past the remains of Sandwell Priory and round Swan Pool you will eventually make your way back to the farm. On the walk, you will see several ponds, woodland, the remains of a historic Benedictine priory, the sand well that the local area gets its name from, a small area of heathland and a large pool with its plentiful waterfowl. With walking, history and waterfowl, there is something for everyone here. The route follows a clear path for its entire length. Most of it is either tarmac or gravel, but there are a couple of sections that can be muddy. The gradients are very shallow and there are no stiles. There is a kissing gate, but you can take a short flight of steps instead if you prefer. There are no toilets on the walk, though there are some at Sandwell Park Farm (entrance charges apply).

Beautiful walk! Some of the kissing gates have been removed but it is still easy to follow. If you�re not sure most of it is signposted with green arrows
