Getting There

A circular walk that takes you from Himley Hall and Park, through Baggeridge Woods, along the Wom Brook in Wombourne then follows the path of the dismantled South Staffs Railway line back to Himley. This trail encompasses woodland, fields, a small brook and then managed woodland walks. There are several points of interest along the route, including Himley Hall and the adjacent Saint Michael and All Angels church. For the most part, the route follows a footpath. However, there are several stiles and some steps and a section of the trail goes through an arable field. The gradients are mainly shallow. There is a busy road crossing and also several hundred yards of track alongside a busy road at the end of the trail. There are toilets available in the park. These are not disabled, however there are disabled toilets available within Himley Hall. Be aware that opening times for the Hall vary. Pay and Display parking is available at Himley Hall and Park, £1.10 for up to 2 hours and £1.60 for over 2 hours. Parking is open from 7AM until dusk, all year round. There is also a cafe at the nearby Golf Centre.

Himley Hall and Park is 4 miles from Dudley town centre on the B4176 and approximately 6 miles from Wolverhampton off the A449. The 256 Wolverhampton - Stourbridge bus route runs quite nearby along the A449, see nxbus.co.uk for a timetable. Postcode: DY3 4DF Telephone: 01384 817817

really enjoyed this 5.6 mile walk starting from Himley Hall, easy to navigate took approx 2 hours, take great care crossing the A449 dual carriage way, we ended the walk with a drink at the Dudley Arms before heading back to Himley Hall (£2 to park all day)

Beautiful trail with loads to see, woodland, brooks, streams, open fields, old architecture and bluebell meadows will definitely do this one again.

excellent walk, beautiful surroundings and good mixture of forest, fields and local footpaths. Maybe needs a couple more steps with added descriptions at the start
