Start time: 10:00
(Estimated finish time: 14:30)
Moderate 8 miles / 12.9 km
(Please note this walk is not suitable for meetup . com due to limited parking at the start)
Meet 9.45am for 10am start by the church in Chalford. The walk starts opposite the church but there is enough parking for about 10/12 cars in the layby down the road (if chuch on your right - turn left!) Please car share where possible. There is also parking for a couple cars in dark lane - between the church and layby.
First few miles are very flat following the towpath to Brimscombe and then we head over to Bussage - via Toadsmoor - there are a couple of steep climbs, one quite long one but places to stop a few times on way up! What goes up comes down, and there is a steep downhill section through wooded area and then through Frith Woods (very nice !) back to Chalford. The walk may be 6 or 8 miles, depending on whether we walk the Toadsmoor Valley.
At the end of the walk there is a choice of a lovely cafe just along from the layby in Chalford or newly opened pub a little further along the canal in Chalford - Ice creams at the cafe are very generous and delicious!!
