October walk (9 Oct 2016) to Longdon Green

Join us for the Boot Women October walk to Longdon Green!

This is a circular walk, which takes us to the village of Upper Longon, and brings us back past the 18th century Longdon Hall (once part of the Bishops of Lichfield Estate).  The walk is about 5 miles, and takes us through a variety of paddocks, meadows and crop fields, with some lovely views throughout.  There are a number of stiles (a few of them ladder type), and one section takes us through Longdon Stud land, so probably best not to bring the dog.

The Red Lion will cater for everyone’s hot and cold drink choices at the end!

Remember to bring some lunch / drinks and something to sit on.

September Walk: Wolverley (11 Sept)

Join us in September for a lovely 5-mile walk to Wolverley.

The walk is about 5 Miles and takes us along the Canal to Cookley where we leave the canal and walk to the river Stour, following the river for a while until we walk off into a coppice full of very interesting ancient trees including some lovely old Yew trees.

The Village of Wolverley has some lovely little ‘Hobbit’ style rock cottages and a beautiful church.

There will be about 2.5 hours of walking with some stiles and a couple of hills. We will walk through fields that house horses so its best not to bring the dog and to wear sturdy shoes.

The Lock Inn at the end of the walk is situated on a canal lock, has a good range of food and there is also a tea room on the other side of the canal that does lovely ice cream!

Remember to bring some lunch / drinks and something to sit on.

Meet for shared lifts at the usual place or contact us for details on how to go directly to the start of the walk.
