Next walk: Himley and Swindon Canal Trail, 10 Dec 2017

Our December walk will be a delightful and easy 5 mile circular walk in the Dudley area with only a few stiles and some steps. There may be some muddy bits, so wear appropriate footwear.

The walk starts at the dismantled Himley Station, follows the South Staffordshire Railway line, turns along the Wom Brook, then heads onto the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal, before turning back along Hinksford Lane and returning to Himley. It encompasses woodland and towpath sections.

After the walk, we will be going on to the Dudley Arms pub.

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

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

November walk in aid of the White Ribbon campaign

 

Our next walk will be in aid of the White Ribbon campaign to stop male violence against women and girls.  Boot Women will be making a donation of £150 on White Ribbon Day (25th November). In addition, anyone wishing to make a personal donation can do so at the November walk.  We will also collect women’s and children’s clean used clothing for Women’s Aid at the November walk.

The walk will be a mostly flat 6.5 miles from Hanbury Wharf. It will include parts of the Worcester and Birmingham Canal as well as Piper’s Hill and the Archers’ inspiring Hanbury Church and Hall.

There will be some kissing gates and a couple of manageable sharp inclines.  As part of the walk is through fields, it could be muddy so be sure to wear appropriate footwear.

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

Next walk: Brewood (10 September 2017)

In September, we will be going on a 5 to 6 mile circular walk commencing in Brewood and following lanes past Chillington Hall before returning to Brewood via the canal towpath. The walk offers views of the local countryside and canals, and also of Chillington Hall in the distance.
The walk is along a very flat route for the most part without challenging gradients. There are several stiles, but most of the fields are flat. Parts of the towpath can be very muddy, even in dry weather so suitable footwear is essential. The walk is suitable for dogs.
It is a gentle pleasant walk with coffee and cakes or something more substantial if required at the end in one of the local eateries.

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

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

Next walk: Church Stretton, 11 June 2017

On our next walk,  we will be returning to Church Stretton in Shropshire.

Church Stretton is a most attractive town situated in the Southern Shropshire hills designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. We will be doing a circular walk heading towards Little Caradoc which is the very smallest of the hills in the area. The walk is 6 miles. There is a fairly steep climb of around 15 to 20 minutes as we go up the hill but the rest of the walk is very easy going. Regarding the climb please don’t be put off; it is very do-able for someone of even average fitness and we will go at the pace of the slowest walker; it won’t be route march!

There are a few stiles and sheep on the hills but well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome. Expect mud and wear suitable clothing.

Afterwards we will be going to a most delightful café with home-made cakes and lots of other goodies!

Note: There are free toilets on site for the start and end of the walk.  

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.
