Overview

This is a circular Chase boundary walk, starting at a layby on the A460 (Hednesford Road), just outside Rugeley, on the left hand side. The layby is opposite a right turn for Slitting Mill.

I advise anyone to navigate using What-3-Words (see below) as it's a busy fast road and easy to shoot past. However, there's plenty of room in the layby. The walk dips into the Chase and Slitting Mill. No stiles. No fields. Paths and tracks are generally good with just a few 'rutted' muddy spots. For anyone who's been on our Horns Inn walk it's the same route starting at a different point. We'll have a break along the way so please bring refreshments
