We will head off from the car park up Dock lane towards Dudley town centre past some of the town's historic buildings passing through Priory park and onto Wrens nest nature reserve where you can see remnants of Limestone mines and caverns. We will do a circuit of the reserve before heading back towards the priory ruins where we can take a quick look. We will then head down Castle Hill past the Zoo and Castle and to the Station Hotel turning right back towards Dudley. We will then cross the foot bridge and head over Kate's Hill past St John's Church Over Tansley Hill and down Cawney Hill towards Warrens Hall Park for a lunch stop. We will then join the canal network going past Netherton Reservoir up to Scott's Green Cemetery before heading back to the leisure centre.
Moderate as there are a few small hills
Not really dog friendly as we will be using quite a few roads to pass between paths.
