Help connect Abbots Bromley

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Abbots Bromley’s Slow Ways.

Some paths need more use so let's hope the inclusion in the Slow Way network helps to encourage more users to get out some nice paths....

Some sections have great views, earlier in the walk, you can see south across the Trent Valley to Lichfield and Cannock Chase. Later you can see Northeast across the Trent Valley (the route turns north of where the the river turns). This route undulates a lot, including the magical woodland walk into Burton....

We cross the river Swarbourn on a footbridge by a ford then head into the woods on a good track, which is easier to follow than the right of way line. Beyond the A515 we cross another wood and head across fields on a fairly well marked path (with more overgrown field boundaries). At Lodge Lane we turn sharp left and follow a track through fields, then an overgrown path (low-lying bramble shoots and nettles) through a wood. We reach Rangemore Hill easily enough and follow the verge up to the shortcut path, then follow Tatenhill Common right, taking advantage of the National Forest Way permissive path north of the road....

Easy to follow path from Uttoxeter to Abbots Bromley. Scenery is predominantly fields but broken up with a few woodland parts. Plenty of pubs at the end of the walk....

We walk a short distance along the quiet Main Road then take the little used field path right, which crosses fields largely unmarked but the stiles are all fine apart from the last one down to Morrey Lane which requires a degree of agility that was almost beyond me. Beyond we follow the edge of an open arable field, where there is no real path until we reach the lane which takes us through a little wood, beyond which the lane turns left and our route crosses two more fields (again few if any traces of a path) to reach Orange Lane. The next field, which surrounds Sunnyside farm, was open pasture, and I chose to follow a quite well trodden shortcut path around the right hand edge rather than approach the farm buildings. Beyond we cross another large open field, go left a short distance along a lane (not north of it as the OS map) then go right along field edges and over more stiles then left a little to reach Ashbrook Lane....

Abbots Bromley and Uttoxeter both have stops and shops in abundance but my one major criticism of this route of over 11km is that there are no stops and little variety between the settlements....

Near Ash Brook the correct path is to the south of the tree lined pond but the trampled path was along the crop edge to the north....

It's a short walk from the poorly sited meeting spot in a pub car park, away from the bus route. The walk through Hamstall Ridware, which has a pub, is along a lane which is relatively open, but is often used by cars and requires caution. The cross country section from Hamstall Hall, crossing the River Blythe was my favourite section of the walk, the only truly relaxing section, helped by a docile herd of cattle....

The route leaves Yoxall passing the village shop and The Crown Inn where the bus stops are located. A footpath leaves the bridleway making a more direct route to Gilleon's Hall around the edge of a field of tall bright yellow oil seed. From here the plan had been to continue north passing The Clump but that proved impossible so I offer a quiet road route which may come as a relieve. Turning north across fields again towards Sunnyside it may be better to follow the field edge to pick up the path heading due north where I met the route in Abbyox-1....

This was an enjoyable walk through quiet countryside from Abbots Bromley to Yoxall via Hamstall Ridware. The walk starts in Abbots Bromley and comprises a mixture of fields with sheep, pasture, arable fields where the path is mostly easily visible and has been left clear of crops, quiet country lanes and a lovely tree-lined bridleway between fields coming into Yoxall....
