|Seisdon and Trysull Round|
|Author: DJHampton, Published: 28 Oct 2012||Walk rating : Rating:|
|This is one of the nicest walks that I know of in South Staffordshire visiting two of its prettiest villages. The walk uses long, easy to follow footpaths, bridleways and farm tracks with two very short stretches along roads. There are several stiles and gates along the route and a few fields have horses, but most of the fields are arable and there is generally little livestock to worry about. |
The route crosses Smestow Brook in several places and there are good views across the South Staffordshire and Shropshire countryside and across to Wolverhampton, Sedgley and Dudley and Kinver Edge too.
Arriva bus services 584, 585, 588 all run through Seisdon and details of times can be found on the Arriva website. Alternatively, the village is a short and pleasant drive from Wolverhampton. To reach the village leave Wolverhampton on the Bridgnorth road, the A454 and turn left at the Fox Inn following the signpost to Seisdon.
|Start to Foxlands|
Start point: 52.5508 lat, -2.2383 long
Park in Seisdon and walk north east through the village towards Lower Penn. Just before the road narrows over Smestow Brook you pass Seisdon Road on the right which takes you to Trysull and Wombourne. Just after Seisdon Road and on the left is the beginning of your footpath, which looks like a narrow alleyway between the houses, but it is well signposted and hard to miss.
|Foxlands to Tinker's Castle|
Start point: 52.5589 lat, -2.2559 long
This next stretch of the walk is very easy to follow and well signposted. Follow the path through the farm buildings to a gate into a field. Walk through the field and through the next gate into another field. Almost directly opposite you there is a gate on the other side of the field, slightly off to the left, so if there is a crop in the field head straight across, because the gate may be obscured.
|Tinker's Castle to Trysull Village|
Start point: 52.5466 lat, -2.2623 long
Follow the path alongside the crenelated house's left hand boundary and the path now carries on along Abbot's Castle Hill giving excellent views off to the left. After nearly two kilometres the path joins the very busy B4176 and crosses over the road to continue along the Staffordshire Way. However, you leave the Staffordshire Way here and instead of crossing the road you walk for about twenty metres along the road to the left and then cross over the stile into the field on the left.
|Trysull Village to End|
Start point: 52.5413 lat, -2.2238 long
Once onto the road turn left towards Seisdon and Pattingham and walk along the road for about hundred metres and then turn right into a field through a gate. The path takes you across the field, through a gate next to house with a large conservatory and then alongside some old farm buildings through a couple of gates to another road.

Lovely walk but feels so much further than 6 miles. We generally walk at a steady 3mph but this takes 3 hours. Good food at The Bell in Trysull.

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!
