A mostly flat walk, starting from Feckenham, a picturesque village surrounded by countryside idyllic for rambling in. The village once stood in the centre of the Royal Forest of Feckenham, which covered large parts of Worcestershire and west Warwickshire and used by Norman royalty for hunting. The forest was reduced in size and by the 16th Century what was left reverted to common land.

From the village, the walk heads for Wylde Moor Nature Reserve, a wetland reserve with a high diversity of wildflowers, wetland birds and insects, particularly dragonflies. The clays of Feckenham Wylde Moor support a surface layer of fen peat, an uncommon Worcestershire habitat that gives the pools their dark velvety hue. A short detour from the walk will take you to a bird hide in the reserve, where you will have a much better chance of viewing the birdlife at the reserve.

From the reserve, the walk continues to Bean Hall Mill and Bradley Green, then skirts around the edge of Berrow Hill to return to Feckenham.
