|Codsall, Oaken and Codsall Wood|
|Author: DJHampton, Published: 23 Sep 2012||Walk rating : Rating:|
|A circular, relatively flat walk through farmland and small woods using paths and bridleways with some short stretches along country lanes. Some of the footpaths can be particularly muddy so boots or wellies are essential. |
There are several stiles along the route and as much of the walk is through farmland, there are a lot of animals in the fields, particularly horses and cows. In one field walkers are warned that a bull is sometimes present as are cows and calves.
As a circular route the walk can be joined at any point, but I've started and finished the walk at a car park in Codsall, which is free and near to the station by the Co-operative supermarket.
|Start to Oaken|
Start point: 52.6298 lat, -2.2021 long
Park in the free car park by the Co-operative supermarket and walk back to the road. Turn right and walk down the road past the park on your right and under the railway bridge. Walk past the mini-roundabout and turn right into Oaken Drive.
|Oaken to Oaken Lawn Cottage|
Start point: 52.6238 lat, -2.2122 long
Standing on the road that runs through the hamlet of Oaken turn right and walk for about 400 metres past Oaks and Limes and where the road bends to the right there is a clear stile into the field straight ahead of you with the stile on the left hand side of the road.
|Oaken Lawn Cottage to Husphins Lane|
Start point: 52.6254 lat, -2.2327 long
Walk past Oaken Lawn Cottage and after about one hundred metres you arrive at a crossroads of paths, which is signposted, with the left hand path taking you to Oaken Croft.
|Husphins Lane to Codsall Wood|
Start point: 52.6351 lat, -2.2286 long
Turn right on Husphins Lane and walk past a few houses on the right and then turn left onto the bridleway, which is well marked, and takes you along a long driveway.
|Codsall Wood to Nursery Farm|
Start point: 52.6421 lat, -2.2254 long
This section of the walk is very straight forward. Having turned right past the Crown pub walk along the lane to the T junction and then turn right towards Gunstone and Pendeford and past St Peter's church.
|Nursery Farm to End|
Start point: 52.6397 lat, -2.2097 long
Cross over the road, but take care because this is blind corner, and you will see the entrance to two tracks with a sign saying "Nursery Farm, no right of way". If you have a map, it suggests that you need to take the right hand track, but this is incorrect as it is the left hand track which is required. The track eventually sweeps round to the left and past the back of Nursery Farm. The track runs adjacent to the track to Nursery Farm passing the back of the farm and then once again becomes quite tight running past a field with horses.

We live nearby and the walk took us down some paths that were new to us. However they were also overgrown so as to be almost impassable and we abandoned the walk half way round

14/09/16. Just completed this walk. Loved it. A little muddy stretch, which could get worse as the autumn progresses, but nothing to a seasoned walker.

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
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!
