A circular walk around Lickey and Barnt Green in the Bromsgrove district of Worcestershire. The walk begins in the beautiful Lickey Hills Country Park, a beautiful site which includes coniferous plantations and mixed woodland, with sculptures, playgrounds and plenty of benches allowing you to make the most of this tranquil setting. The walk continues through the destination village of Barnt Green before fields and bridleway tracks lead you to get a glimpse of the beautiful Upper Bittell Reservoir. The final stretch passes the beautiful parish church in Cofton Hackett before a steep climb back into the Lickey Hills. The route has several moderate gradients throughout, plus one steep climb towards the end. The paths are mostly stone tracks or unsurfaced and some stretches can be very muddy in winter or after periods of rain. There are no stiles or livestock on route, but you will need to negotiate some flights of steps, gates and one kissing gate. Dogs are welcome in the country park and this route makes a great dog walk. Allow 2.5 hours.

A beautiful walk on a gorgeous day. This walk was the first we have chosen to do through the app. It was very easy to follow the map given and the instructions were straight forward. The main recommendation I would make is to make sure you get there early if it’s a nice day. We did this today (bank holiday Monday) and arrived about 10:00am. Spoke to one of the rangers who told us that the car parks were full by 11:00. If, like us, your not an experienced walker, then this is an ideal trail to use.

Loved using this app for the first time. I went the wrong way 3 times but the interactive map had me back on the correct route in no time. Very impressed
