A pleasant tour along well used paths at Chasewater, less use south to Brownhills but still well defined which is useful as the plot is very poor....

The exit is on a safe roadside pavement and then a tarmac cycle track on the bed of a rail route. After crossing the rail line a second time the route is then along a safe roadside footway which passes a large supermarket before arriving at the meeting point which has seats with buses and a coffee shop close by....

The route then reaches Chasewater Country Park and the cafe at Chasewater Heaths Station (part of the stream railway which runs around the outside of the lake). The route through Norton Canes is direct and easy to navigate to the meeting point....

On arrival at Chasewater Country Park by Chasewater Heaths Station (2) (tourist railway) you cross the railway line and turn left to join a track (3). The area surrounding the path becomes marshy and I soon found the entire path was under water (6) due to recent rain. Near here the path emerges on to a lane, which you cross and join a path which then runs along the dam (7). The route then goes left to join the end of the Wyrley and Essington Canal at Anglesey Wharf (8)....

Walk this route

Having passed numerous shops and pubs and underneath the railway arch, you turn off to the right (2) and follow a series of pavements and then footpaths through a quiet residential area (3). You cross a car park (popular with mountain bikers) and turn left into Stile Cop Road. There is a short section of road walking here but the stretch is straight and has verges. At the end of the road you cross over onto Startley Hill where the Way picks up the Heart of England Way. Even if you don't divert to walk around the monument, the road at the front beyond the car park has great views south across the Black Country and into Worcestershire. The route folows the track and ends up on Chorley Road where you turn right and the pavement follows the road up the hill past a couple of pubs and small supermarkets before turning left into Rugeley Road....

Walk this route

The route out of Lichfield follows the pavement of Walsall Road past Festival Park and then along the main road. You turn left into a bridleway, Woodhouse Lane (10, 11 and 12) which takes you to the edge of Burntwood. It's all pavement from here, along Church Road, left into Rugeley Road and then right into Cannock Road which takes you up a gentle slope to your destination (15)....

The route is certainly not direct and travels a long way north east to pick up the Heart of England Way when there are safer more direct footpaths linking the two settlements....
