|Codsall to Chillington Hall Circular Trail|
|Author: Sammy Benbow, Published: 10 Jun 2014||Walk rating : Rating:|
|This is a 7 mile circular walk, starting in Codsall village, heading out past Chillington Hall and then returning to Codsall. The trail encompasses views of fields and woodlands, and also takes you past Chillington Hall, a Grade I listed building. As this walk takes you through a few kinds of habitat, it is ideal for spotting flora and fauna. Kingfishers and Goldfinches have both been seen along this trail. |
Large sections of the walk take place on tarmac roads, but there are some sections that can be extremely muddy so stout walking boots are essential. You may be sharing some of the fields with grazing animals. There are several stiles along the route and some parts (including one fairly long stretch) follow the edge of main roads that have no pavement, so take care of traffic.
By car: take the A41 from the M54, then follow Heath House Lane and Histons Hill into Codsall village. Free parking is available in the village, in a car park between Wolverhampton Road and Bakers Way.
|Start to Whitehouse Lane|
Start point: 52.6312 lat, -2.2004 long
Depart the car park and cross the main road (Bakers Way) via the crossing, then head up Church Road towards St Nicholas C Of E Church. Continue on past the church, following the road round to the right, where it becomes Sandy Lane. At the next bend in the road, continue straight on along the track, leaving the road. After 300m, enter the fields.
|Whitehouse Lane to Big Wood|
Start point: 52.6382 lat, -2.1891 long
After you cross the stile, turn left along Whitehouse Lane. Walk 100m then turn right along the gated bridleway, marked as a private road with access to Gunstone Farm.
|Big Wood to The Crown|
Start point: 52.6615 lat, -2.2105 long
Enter Big Wood via the wooden gate and follow the track. It runs for 1700m, the latter half of which is likely to be very muddy. About half way, the track will open up to a wide area on the right and a gateway on the left. Continue straight on, keeping the wall to your left. This section, as noted, can be very muddy and also overgrown.
|The Crown to Chillington Lane|
Start point: 52.6426 lat, -2.2243 long
At the junction with Church Lane, you have the option of calling in at the local pub. To visit the pub, The Crown, turn right down Church Lane, then return to this point later to continue the walk.
|Chillington Lane to End|
Start point: 52.6397 lat, -2.2097 long
As you emerge onto Chillington Lane, the next section of the trail is slightly to your right. There is a gate leading to a field and two tracks to the right. Take the left hand of the two tracks, signposted Nursery Farm Cottage. Continue on for 250m, then take the stile to the right of the metal gate, just past the houses. In the distance you will see St Nicholas' Church, which you are heading towards.

Great walk but I had problems finding the hidden stile - it's 3/4 way up the corn field

Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
