Take a walk on the Waseley Hil

Put your best foot forward and enjoy the fresh air

Worcestershire County Council's Countryside Service is giving residents the opportunity to take a free, guided walk in Barnt Green and Waseley Hills on Saturday, May 12.

With the option of two different walks, one, a rather hearty fourteen miles or a more leisurely six miles taking in the Longbridge to Halesowen railway line, the remains of the Dowery Dell viaduct, Uffmore wood to hear about Bella in the Wych Elm, The Elan Valley aqueduct and lots more. The group will also be joined by Edwin Gumbley to give further insight into the railway line.

The walk is being led by Parish Paths Warden Simon Richards, who advises that the walk can muddy after rain so suitable footwear should be worn.

The fourteen mile walk will start at Barnt Green at 9.30am and finish at approximately 4.30pm and the six mile walk will begin at 11.30 at Waseley Hills Country Park finishing at 2.30pm.

Amanda Hill, Countryside Access Volunteers Officer, said: "The walk gives people the opportunity to explore the local countryside with someone who is familiar with the area as well as the social aspect of walking within a group. It’s the ideal opportunity to get out in the fresh air and enjoy the spring and summer as it approaches".

Contact Simon Richards at  for information about the walk or visit for other free, guided walks or for ideas on things to do in the countryside.
