The walk starts and finishes at the car park for The Knapp and Papermill Nature Reserve, which is home to a wide range of animals, including kingfishers and otters, not to mention the variety of flowers you will see passing through.

The route starts by exploring the countryside to the south of the nature reserve, following tracks, paths and bridleways up and along the hillside, through woodland and open areas and the orchards of Norbury's Fruit Farm. There are fine views across to Bredon Hill and the Malverns from the highest parts of the walk. The route then returns to the nature reserve, heading alongside the river with snowdrops and daffodils in spring and a picturesque weir, which powered a mill for nearly 200 years. Information about the reserve can be obtained at an information centre at the end of the walk.

The walk could be extended by exploring other paths through the nature reserve. Details are available at the information centre, which you can visit before starting the walk.

Bit of a disaster... 1st stile we came to after turning off the road. Massive blockage at the stile. Tree was down. Looked like a jungle. No way could you even contemplate getting through it all..... Ended up doing the Knapp. Nature reserve. Although lovely very, disappointing regards the walk.
