We venture to the outer edges of the Lichfield branch boundary for the first time on this walk. It is is an easy 4 ¾-mile amble across farmland, on footpaths, quiet country lanes and the towing path. There are no stiles.

Leaving the centre of the award-winning town we proceed past the church and cross the canal at Hyde Mill Lane, where we join the Staffordshire Way heading southwards. We soon cross the long (2-mile) avenue to Chillington Hall before eventually turning east towards the hamlet of Park Lane. Here we turn northwards, and evenutally re-join the Lower Avenue of Chillington Hall in some woods. This leads us down to the Shropshire Union Canal at an ornate bridge, from where we follow the towpath northwards, first in a deep cutting, and later an embankment, back to our starting point in Brewood.

Meet 10:15 for a 10:30 start on Thursday 27th May 2021 at The Swan Hotel in the centre of the village at 15 Market Place, Brewood, Staffordshire ST19 9BS. Please park in the pub car park (accessed through the arched entrance). Contact Clive Walker on 07866 201873 or clive.walker@waterways.org.uk

NB: The pub will not be serving food, but we are permitted to eat our own food on the premises, providing we buy some drinks from the bar.
