Our second Clent Hills walk starts at the same car park as our first walk. It's free and you can always find a space. The walk starts by a short walk up the access road, then heads up to the trig point on Walton Hill. From here we take an undulating descent to Calcot Hill, giving us varying views that we shan't attempt to decribe. We take the North Worcestershire Path up to Romsley Hill, then down Dayhouse Bank

From here we cross the motorway to skirt the bottom of Chapman's Hill, passing the car park to Waseley Hills Country Park. (We intend to write a third walk from this location).

The walk then joins the Illey Way and Monarch's Way for a short time, going through more wooded areas, skirting Romsley and finally returning to the walk start.

This walk took place on 29th August 2009.

Enjoyed walking this route today, despite the cold weather. The Manchester Inn appears to be permanently closed. Other comments on the internet suggest it closed 6 months ago. This did not bother us as we had a picnic with us. The nearby Waseley Hills country park has a cafe, toilets and picnic tables.

I did this walk today. Took a prolonged detour around Waseley Country park between waypoints 6&7 because the weather was stunning and I felt like it. Also detoured between 8&9 into Ell wood because a lost couple who came out of it said it was bluebell city. Their walking book had got them lost. The map and instructions here set them correctly on their way. Got some amazing photos of fantastic views, and the directions were first class. Had a swift half at the Manchester, but didn't eat. Great walk.

Thanks for the comments. We've rewalked and reworked the text (and added a photo for wp11 to fully clarify it). As an addition we'd like to state the walk is pretty dog friendly, although leads must be used a certain live stock points. We ate at the Manchester again - we were a little disappointed this time - a 35 min wait (we were the only food order) and although the traditional faggots were great the chips were total over cooked. We forgot to say about 10 minutes after the pub you can stop at the cafe at the Waseley country park entrance.

Lovely varied walk with gorgeous views. However, amendment needs to be made at point 8. After crossing the bridge over the stream and the stile you follow the path where the field is on the RIGHT and the hedge/trees on the left, before reaching another stile which once crossed brings you into another field with the hedge on the right and field on the left. Also at point 10 there is a hedge in the middle of the field through which you have to walk before reaching the far hedgerow, which you follow to the right. After this, when emerging at the saddlery/supplies building, which is on the left as you emerge, you have to turn left for a few metres before turning right, onto the road, because you emerge on a track at the side of the building (this track also goes right) and this can send you off in the wrong direction.
