Time

10:15am

We first pass through the historic churchyard of St Mary & St Luke, before walking along a back road towards Calf Heath. At the boundary to the village, we enter a footpath running parallel to the canal which brings us to Deepmore Bridge. Crossing over the canal for the first time we pick up a track which we follow through the hidden hamlet of Deepmore, until we eventually join the towpath at Long Moll’s bridge. The Staffs and Worcs. Canal winds its way past Hatherton Marina, the (disused) junction and we continue to follow the towpath as far as Moat House bridge no.74, from where we walk alomg a green lane back to our starting point.

Meet 10:15 for a 10:30 start on Thursday 16th September 2021 in the car park of The Elms Public House, Church Road, Shareshill, Staffordshire WV10 7JR.
