This is a 6 mile circular walk from Pattingham, Staffordshire. It starts in Pattingham village, follows roads for a short distance before heading past fields and woodland. The walk offers lots of views of the surrounding countryside and Wolverhampton can be seen on a clear day. It is quite popular with dog walkers and twitchers.

The walk is quite flat with very shallow gradients. There are half a dozen stiles to navigate, but some can be avoided. The roads are mainly quiet, but some are lacking in pavements, so take care. Some parts are likely to be muddy/overgrown. Allow a couple of hours for the walk, which is quite easily to follow. There is a small precinct of shops at the start of the walk.

The village of Pattingham is roughly seven miles from both Wolverhampton and Bridgnorth. There is a small amount of free parking by the village church.

By car: Pattingham is reasonably close to J3 of the M54. Alternatively, take the A454. Approximate postcode: WV6 7AG

By bus: the 10A from Wolverhampton, see for details.

At the gate to The Bradshaws, keep right. Continue straight for 350m along the road, heading towards the large bank of trees. Pass these, keeping them on your left. Head straight along the field boundary to the next bank of trees. At the end of these, turn sharply left, ignoring the blue waymarkers. Head across the field, keeping to the boundary.

Take the stile by the metal gate at the end. Continue down the road for 250m, then turn right by the fingerpost for the public footpath. Go through the gate, cross a couple of stiles, then follow the road back to Nurton Hill road.
