Overview

From Brocton Field we strike out east across open moorland, then down to cross the Sher Brook. We continue NE, descending along woodland paths through Abraham's Valley, then westwards through more open country before crossing the stepping stones at the Sher Brook ford. There is a short climb up Oat Hill before turning back along the Heart of England Way and the Two Saints Way to reach the car park. This is a circular walk suitable for dogs, as there are no stiles.
