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.

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
