Next walk: Wombourne to Compton, 14 July 2024

created by dji camera

The July walk is a 9 mile-long pleasant trail that starts at the old Wombourne station  and follows the disused railway line to Compton, which closed in 1965.
The trail is popular with walkers, cyclists and runners so can be busy.
The route has a combination of surfaced paths with some rough sections that can be very muddy so appropriate footwear is advised.
At Compton, we will take a break at the local pub before heading back along the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal to the famous Bratch locks, built by James Brindley in 1772.
Leaving the locks, we follow the road back up to the car park but not before we take a look at the pumping station built to look like fairytale castle.

Please remember to bring some lunch / drinks and something to sit on.

Well-behaved dogs are also welcome.

Contact us for details on how to go to the start of the walk.

We are still collecting for Women’s Aid, and optional donations of 1£ (or more) will be welcome.
