Overview

Jean is leading a 8/9 mile easy round morning walk.

Walking from the common, past the riding centre, up a small hill and towards Charlton Farm. Reaching the railway line and walking along here until we reach the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. Continuing until we reach the Basin. Here we will stop for a coffee/light packed lunch looking out over the River Severn and the locks.

After a break, walk along the River Severn. Due to flooding of the foot path, I’ve changed the walk, lovely views walking from the top of the bank, past a couple of farms and back to the Common.
Back for about 4pm

There is a cafe when we stop at the locks for a break for those who wish to sit inside if it’s raining or buy a take away hot drink.

Please arrive at 10:15 for a 10:30 start.
