Description

Leaves Landywood Station, cuts through small retail park before joining Hilton Lane. Crosses the A34 by The Star pub and then cuts into a footpath which goes briefly through woodland. It emerges into residential streets and makes its way north before you cross a style and then a field to emerge on the verge of the A5. There is no pedestrian crossing here so caution is advised. You can move further up the verge to use the central reservation. On the other side is a pavement which you walk along briefly before taking a series of footpaths which bring you out at the footbridge over the M6 Toll. The footpath on the other side is very well tended and despite being within 20 or so metres of the motorway at the start, it is actually a really pleasant walk. The path then goes around Kingswood Lake and a track takes you out to Washbrook Lane. You go straight ahead into the lane, where there is a short section of road walking with space to move into at the side if a vehicle approaches. After 100m you turn into a very well marked path through woodland. A series of paths bring you to the side of St James the Great Church in Norton Canes. After a couple of residential streets you join the pavement of the main road, which takes you the remaining way to the meeting point in Norton Canes

Surveys

We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

David Sanderson — 01 Aug 2021

Starting through a residential section of Great Wyrley the route reaches the Star Pub where it crosses the A34 and cuts down a footpath through a field and into woodland. It emerges on the north side and some more residential pavement pounding is required. Crossing into a field the footpath emerges on the A5 which required patience to cross. Soon after, another series of slightly overgrown but easy to follow paths ascend to a bridge over the M6 Toll. The footpath on the other side is mown grass and very easy to follow to Kingswood Lake. The path here is dirt track and duckboard and circles around until reaching a track which you use to leave the Lakeside Area. There is a short bit of lane walking along Washbrook Lane but I found local drivers to be courteous and there is room to move to one side. After about 150m you take a footpath through woods which guides you through to the edge of Norton Canes. The route from there is via pavement and is very straightforward. In summary, this route is pleasant and reasonably direct but was designed on the fly having had to turn back from Grenor 1. If it could be improved it could be maybe more direct and have a safer crossing of the A5 but until that route is devised I would definitely recommend this one!.
