An enjoyable and easy to follow route. The route continues along a main road before a series of footpaths take you through a residential area....

The walk along the Droitwich Canal was new to me and it's a peaceful pleasant way to walk. The diversion passes two pubs which wouldn't have been our choice as a walk, but is good Slow Ways methodology as it is at 6km, which is roughly half way in this 13km walk. The least enjoyable part of the walk was the walk along Hindlip Lane, which has no pavement, and which is quite busy with fast traffic. Overall it's a good walk, slightly spoilt by a couple of bits of poor plotting....

We follow the B road to the Worcester and Birmingham canal. Turning right onto the canal towpath, we follow the canal for about 4 km until just after it crosses the railway, then cross a bridge and a few fields to the marina....

From here we use the pavement to cross the railway (this is a little unclear on the GPX file but there is no alternative), then follow the surfaced path across Salwarpe Road to Ledwych Road. We then follow the canal past Salwarpe to emerge onto the road near Porter Mill. At the bottom of the field we follow the hedge right to find an underpass under the main road to the left, then turn left again, then right at Holy Claines farm, along a lane which passes through a lorry park and eventually leads us to the Worcester & Birmingham canal, which we follow into Worcester, crossing to the West bank about halfway, then using pavements with pelican crossings to reach the meeting point at Foregate Station....

The field just south of Fernhill Heath should have a footpath cut across it (according to the map) but its just full of crops. I ended up walking round the edge on the west side of the field, as presumably the owner of the field watched me from a distance. However, the rest was very pleasant....

Walked this early May (lovely weather) a nice rural walk particularly enjoyable section walking past Hanbury Hall and the Jenny Ring shops/cafe is lovely if open. There was two fields I decided to circumvent due to cows (you can see in the Strava below and here: https://www.strava.com/activities/7103127350) a steep hill before the church can be tough but I believe the road to the left can get around that but worth the climb for the views. The park area as you leave Redditch can be confusing but I believe most paths head in the right direction and a GPX on your watch will help....

Lovely peaceful Canalside (for the most part) route. Well plotted and easy to follow. Would definitely do again....

We walked this route from the Railway Station having caught the train to Bromsgrove rather than starting from Bromsgrove Centre. You then follow the John Corbett Way which is very well signposted to the Chateau Impney hotel and then crossing the railway bridge to bring us back onto the Slow ways route into Droitwich....

I recommend this route as part of Slow Ways as a starting route. There is a field that this route crosses that starts with a style that has a large unavoidable puddle, it had been raining before my walk. I will attempt to upload a more tidy version of this route and upload to Slow Ways as a slightly better alternative....
