This circular trail that starts at Wombourn Railway Station, goes up the disused railway line to Compton, then switches to the Staffs and Worcs Canal to head back to the start. Allow 3.5 hours to complete the walk, less if you keep a steady pace. The route offers views of the local countryside, and follows a path through woodland and along canal towpaths. Much wildlife can be seen and heard along this route, and you will also pass by several lock systems. It is also suitable for cyclists. There is a cafe at the start/end of the walk and there are several shops available at Compton, the first waypoint about midway through the walk.

Lovely walk today. Easy (both because it is relatively flat and the instructions are simple to follow). Enjoyed it immensely.
