Abbots Morton - Rous Lench - Church Lench - Atch Lench - Abbots Morton

The Lenches is an area of unspoilt natural beauty with magnificent views and villages of chocolate-box black-and-white houses with their very distinctive tall chimneys. It appears to be a little-known area of the Midlands, possibly due to the fact that there are no real tourist attractions. We first discovered it when we attended a harp concert in the church at Abbots Morton and were so taken with the village that we decided it would be a great area to expand our walking. We were surprised to find that there were no such walks on the website, hence our contribution. One of the highlights is the path through the extremely peaceful Yeald Wood where it is possible to see deer and another is the delightful Goll's Garden Centre.

A very pleasant and predominantly flat walk through lovely countryside. The views are good and there is abundant wildlife in the quiet fields and woods(especially birds). The going was relatively easy on dry ground but might be more difficult after a wet spell. Directions are good and the route is pretty well signed. The villages are peaceful and picturesque and offer a contrast to the more rural sections. Recommended.

We walked with three dogs, apart from the 200m stretch after Golls, the few sections of roads were quiet, and we found several ponds for the dogs to drink from after approx half way. It was a lovely walk, varied countryside, super views & interesting villages. Great fun, many thanks

Abbots Morton is a lovely village with easy parking in the village hall car park. Some great views, deer to be seen in Yeald Wood. There are also long stretches of quiet roads and open expanses of greenery which don't require an intense focus and are ideal for listening to an audible book or similar.

A very pleasant walk with wide ranging views for much of the way round. Quite a lot of road/hard surface work, but very quiet roads. The directions are easy to follow and there are plenty of waymarks.
