Getting There

This is a circular walk around Tipton's canals. It starts and ends very close to Tipton Railway Station and follows canal towpaths for the entire route. The walk takes you through some of Tipton's manufacturing heritage and along some surprisingly rural tracks. There is a large amount of wildlife to be seen. The walk is 95% flat, with a few shallow inclines and bridges. Take care in icy weather, though, as some of the bricks that form the footpath would likely be slippery. It is quite suitable for someone with a lower level of fitness, or perhaps for children. There are several Radar Key Scheme gates along the route.

Access to the start of the walk is available by train at the adjacent Tipton station, by bus from West Bromwich, Dudley or Walsall bus stations, or by car on the B4517, Owen Street. Approximate postcode: DY4 8QG

Pleasant walk along the canal. Took a picnic, but there wasn't really a good spot to sit. This walk is more for just that... Walking

Me and my friends use this a a running rout. It’s lovely flat and a nice run. Better than running in the road. Really like this route.
