|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.
|Start to Nurton Hill|
Start point: 52.5901 lat, -2.2619 long
Depart the village along High Street, with the precinct of shops on your right. Walk for just over a kilometre, then take the turning on the left marked Nurton Hill Road. There is no pavement along this section, so take care. Walk up Nurton Hill Road for 850m, until you see a green/white sign marking a public footpath on the right. Take this single lane track for 200m. Shortly before the end of the lane, there is another sign for a public footpath between a red brick wall and a laurel hedge.
|Nurton Hill to The Bradshaws|
Start point: 52.6001 lat, -2.2489 long
Navigate the stile, then continue straight along the alleyway and along the field boundary for 300m. Navigate the stile, then continue straight. After just over a kilometre, go straight through the farm, keeping the farmhouse on your left and the outbuildings on your right. After a further 700m, by the houses, turn right.
|The Bradshaws to End|
Start point: 52.6109 lat, -2.2279 long
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.

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!
