A favourite walk of Doreen Williams, founder member of the Sandwell group. There are no steep hills and the walk takes in the North Worcestershire Path, the Staffordshire and Worcester Canal, the River Stour, The Bulls Head at Cookley for refreshments, the Caunsall Fairy Glen, and Worcestershire countryside in between.
For car share, Sandwell Road car park, West Bromwich.
