This is an almost flat walk on the Staffordshire / Shropshire border with no stiles and with views of The Wrekin from its modest high point. It uses a new (April 2012) board-walk across a water meadow to reach a lane, after which there are farm tracks and a towpath to complete what is, in effect, a triangular walk. The site of an ancient fortified house is passed and excellent refreshments may be had halfway round.

This walk is not really safe between points 7 and 8. The lane has high hedges, several blind bends and no verge to walk on. When we walked it on Easter Monday (2015) the lane was quite busy with traffic and it was at best unpleasant to keep out of the way of cars and at worst rather dangerous. A walk taking in Gnosall and Norbury Junction is well worth doing but this walk is probably not the one.
