Knightwick - Whitbourne - Bringsty Common - Knightwick

This is a rural walk that holds your interest all the way round just by sheer variety of buildings and countryside views. There are quite a lot of stiles, but most of the walk is easy walking with one short, moderate hill climb at Lower Elmores End. The car park is near a country butcher's shop. The Talbot Inn is only a short walk away if you take the footbridge across the River Teme or a short drive round to it.

If combined with Bromyard Downs to Bringsty Common, Walk Number 4702, a moderate 15-mile walk can be done for the more energetic. It intersects this walk at Waymark 28 and leaves before Waymark 30.

We walked this walk for the 2nd time in 6 years, and roughly at the same time of year. It's a truly beautiful walk with gorgeous countryside, rolling hills, very green at this time of year, not so overgrown. It's a stunning walk. I can appreciate the comment about the start and finish [A44], so at the start, cross the road directly opp. the butchers [don't put their postcode in the satnav!] and just on the right at the start of the lane is a gate [or stile..] go over and go to the end of the field [adjacent to the A44] and continue from there. It's the same at the end, don't walk straight ahead to exit onto the A44, but look to the right and exit out of the gate opp. the butchers. I thoroughly recommend this walk, took us 4.15 hours, because we were always stopping to admire the wonderful views and beautiful houses! Any advice about walking through a field with cows in?!!

Thanks for the feedback David. I have just walked the route 23.7.15 and agree the field at Fincher's Farm is overgrown. I have reported it to the Parish and County Councils. With a friend we were able to cut through and complete the walk.These rural walks are prone to overgrowth in the Summer and are a lot better to walk Autumn ,Winter and Spring. I also suggest the walk along the main Road at the start of the walk can be lessened by taking the stile at SO727558 and rejoining the road at SO725559 opposite the lane to take.

This turned out to be a disastrous walk and I would not recommend it. The walk along the A44 (Item 1) was dangerous with the verge difficult to walk on and very fast heavy traffic. The fingerpost (Item 1) was missing or totally buried in the hedge. However, the main cause of discontent was the totally overgrown footpath at Finchers Farm just beyond 'another stile to your left'(Item 7). The path was obliterated by shoulder high nettles and thistles.Despite sometime spent searching for an alternative route none was found as the only other path on the OS map that would have enabled us to work around was nowhere to be seen. We retraced the route and devised our own walk on the other side of the A44 so as not to again have to walk along it

Saturday 7.9.13 I thoroughly enjoyed walking this route(4701) today apart from the last mile where I took the shortcut via lane . I found no blocked stiles or gates and for the time of year on a country walk the pathways were remarkably clear and way marking good. So nothing serious enough for me to report to the County Council Access Officer. The stiles are rural and not very friendly if you have a large dog or for anyone infirm. A pleasant six mile version can be done joining this walk from Whitbourne Village hall I checked walk(4702) last week and nothing to report there either.

We tried to do this walk(4702) last Wednesday (21st August 2013) & found it extremely difficult. The stiles, kissing gates & gates were all blocked off which made it hard enough & impossible with a big dog (a boxer). The trails were very badly over grown which didn't help either. I had planned to lead a group on this route so glad I checked it first as none of my walkers would have coped. We didn't attempt walk 4701 because of the stiles. I would be interested to know when these walks were last checked. Cheers

June 2012 - very pleasant walk, with great views in the second half of it. Lots of stiles makes it tricky for dogs unless you have a little one that can be picked up. Can highly recommend the real ale at the Talbot - you can choose between "This", "That", or "T'other" !

This is a lovely walk. In Autumn the colours are beautiful and there is plenty to see. I would definitely recommend it.

A beautiful walk in Autumn (19/10/08), however I did encounter a bull near Whitbourne Hall!!! I met the farmer who ensured me he is usually friendly!
