Description

Route from Lichfield goes through the pedestrianised city centre and avoids Bishops Walk which is shut until June at the earliest. The route goes up Curborough Road rather than Dimbles Lane and goes via a residential street and an alleyway across a field to the underpass which avoids crossing the sometimes very busy Eastern Avenue. A series of well used footpaths take you across countryside to the edge of the village of Elmhurst where you loop around a field passing Apsley House and avoid the narrow lanes. The route there becomes the same as Lickin One and crosses the West Coast Mainline over a railway bridge. You then follow footpaths north through fields of sheep and sometimes cows until crossing Wood End Lane. The path is marked as closed by HS2 until June 2021 here but I was able to access it under the gaze of security. I think they allow walkers as long as work is not actually going on in the area of the path. Having gone through Black Slough Wood the path goes through a field and then turns right to join the A515 and there is a bit of verge walking required. Another footpath (fenced in for a section by HS2) takes you most of the rest of the way and a lane delivers you to the meeting point in Kings Bromley. A pleasant village

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.

I think this route has the edge over Lickin One, especially as part of Lickin One is shut until June 2021. A safer flatter more open route between Lichfield and Elmhurst and then the same route to Kings Bromley.
