Starting at Church Lench, we visit Rous Lench, Abbots Morton and Atch Lench. There are about nine stiles and several ups and downs. The name ‘Lench’ comes from an Anglo-Saxon word ‘linch’, meaning ‘rising ground’. There is no pub on the way but we will have drinks stops and a lunch-time sandwich break. You can also have a drink in the Lenches Club afterwards if you wish. This is arguably the quietest area in the Midlands; at least when Sandwell Ramblers are not in the vicinity!
For car share, Sandwell Road car park, West Bromwich.
