This linear walk along a few branches of the Stourbridge Canal. It commences at The Fens Pools in Pensnett and ends near to The Bonded Warehouse in Stourbridge. 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. There are a couple of nature boards along the route detailing some of the history of the local area. There are also points of historical interest. The footpath is a well maintained tarmac 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 some slopes can be slippery during wet weather.

Nice canal walk on a sunny day.
