This linear walk along a section of the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal. It commences at The Bratch, a staircase of locks near Wombourne and heads through quiet countryside to Stourton, between Stourbridge and Kinver. The walk itself is along a canal towpath and offers views of the surrounding countryside and of the canal, which is often reasonably busy with boat traffic. The footpath is a well maintained gravel path for the most part and would also be suitable for cyclists. However, there are several low bridges that you will need to take care of while going under and there is a flight of about 15 steps at Swindon Lock. There are no stiles.
