In 2018 our walks raised a splendid £464 towards the Centre’s appeal funds for the Coast and Countryside. We walked in everything from deep snow to sweltering heat, but whatever the weather we enjoy our walks and look forward to hopefully seeing new faces in the coming year.

Our walks are usually on the first Sunday of each month, and start at 10.30. They are a leisurely three to four miles. We usually have about 15 to 20 walkers and aim to finish between 12.30 and 1.00.

The cost is £2.00.

Details of the walks we've got planned are below.  If you are interested in joining one, or have a general enquiry about them, please send us a message using this contact form.

Sunday, January 6

​Hockley Heath

For our New Year walk we are staying close to home, and taking a morning stroll around Hockley Heath. We will also enjoy our New Year tradition of scoffing mince pies!

Sunday, February 3

​Baddesley Clinton

Our February walks are usually popular as we bid farewell to winter. Hopefully early signs of spring will be visible as we take a morning walk from Baddesley Clinton.

Sunday 3 March

Broadacre, Dorridge

Those of you who attend the splendid Bentley Heath Market each Friday morning may well have bought plants or produce from Broadacre, where Mr & Mrs Woolman have beautiful gardens and a nature reserve. Broadacre opens under the National Gardens Scheme each year, but we shall be able to have an early spring preview as Mr & Mrs Woolman have kindly allowed us to include the gardens and reserve at the start of our morning walk.

Sunday 7 April

Blakedown

Join us for a springtime walk in the pleasant countryside between Belbroughton and Blakedown.

Sunday 5 May

Hanbury Hall

Our last walk from Hanbury Hall was 10 years ago, so it’s time we returned for a morning walk in the rolling parkland and hopefully find some bluebells. There is a tea room at Hanbury, and the popular Jinney Ring Craft Centre is close by.

Our popular book of Walks around Packwood House and Baddesley Clinton is on sale in the shops at Packwood House and Baddesley Clinton and also at Waterstone’s in Solihull. On line it can also be purchased through Amazon.

The book has a selection of walks of varying lengths around both properties. The price is £7.50 with all proceeds from sales through the Centre going to our Countryside and Coastline appeal.
