Latest Updates

Using Kinalr-3 and a small variation at King's Bromley makes a varied circular walk of 8 miles from Alrewas which has good on-street parking and is accessible from Derby, Burton or Lichfield. The field paths eventually meet a track which takes me to the road, it’s a fairly direct crossing onto another track. At a gate our path turns to cross a cropped field, well it will be in summer but at year end it’s awaiting cultivation after harvest. King's Bromley has a Co-op and Inn and a buses to Alrewas, Burton and Lichfield....

There was however standing water in the fields but our path avoids any need to paddle. The path passes through the farm and past the boarded up farm house. The road turns right and our path heads towards the church eventually taking advantage of a raised path which avoids the floods....

I started this route from Alrewas. Just beyond Orgreave Hall, the route takes you away from the one which would have taken you towards the verge of the A513, and takes you away across farmland towards the River Trent....

The route that balances "offroad" and "direct" the best. There's a major, if relatively easy crossing of the A513 coming in or out of Kings Bromley....

The path later follows a field edge before crossing to a stile along an invisible path. Leaving the road the path follows the field edge then enters the edge of a wood, not well used but clear and pleasant....

Shops etc at Armitage but if not required, best stay on the canal towpath. A short detour north to meet the canal where a slope offers access while steps provide a direct route, but later this is not a route for wheels. But it's not all doom and gloom, there is also a field with the path clearly marked and clear of the emerging crop. Again no marked path on the approach to the road where a fingerpost hides in the hedge to confirm I've found the correct point. A short section of road where the verge can offer a refuge but the tarmac makes for easier walking....

The little path down to the old bridge could easily be missed, but it was a welcome break from the main road. Bondfield Lane is easily reached and we go straight on most of the way to Main Road then right along a well used path that leads through a park to Yoxall, where we go straight on to the main road and follow it left to the rather poorly sited meeting point at the entrance to the church (no seats and no bus stops, but there are both a little further south)....

The route out of Lichfield is easy to follow if you trust the GPX - Curborough Road has a good pavement, and the path from St Catherines Road to the underpass under Western Road is clear and well used, though not shown on the OS map. Beyond the underpass we go right on a good path through the trees then left over a little bridge onto another well used field path....

At Orgreave, there is a misleading footpath sign that points towards the A513 when you should turn left through the Orgreave gates towards the gas station.

On reaching civilisation, the Trent and Mersey Canal at Handsacre, I felt a sense of relief. You soon leave the canal to follow the high streets through Handsacre and then Armitage. The walk from the canal to the meeting place in Rugeley is short and unremarkable....

Where this route differs from Kinyox One is that rather than continuing to follow the main road it takes a footpath off to the left which takes you over the Trent and into a lane then via a series of well mowed footpaths, delivers you to the edge of Yoxall. Kinyox Two, having crossed a local park, then takes a footpath that goes around the main part of Yoxall....

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...
