|Millennium Way: Upton Snodsbury and Broughton Hackett|
|Author: Millennium Way, Published: 24 Dec 2016||Walk Rating:|
|The circular walk is a little over 3 miles, mostly flat across open countryside and through farmland in Worcestershire. It is an ideal gentle stroll for a sunny weekend, before taking refreshment at one of the two pubs mentioned. During the walk, you will enjoy a delightful section of the Millennium Way, the route being clearly marked by the distinctive green waymarkers. This route starts from The Oak pub in Upper Snodsbury, but if you prefer you can adapt the route to start and finish at The March Hare in Broughton Hackett (waypoint 3). |
The route is relatively flat. You will need to negotiate several gates plus two stiles (which are suitable for dogs). You are likely to come across livestock in some of the fields so take particular care with dogs. Allow 1.5 hours.
The Millennium Way is a beautiful 100 mile walk in the heart of England, from Pershore in Worcestershire to Middleton Cheney in Northamptonshire. The route was created by the 41 Club as a community project, with something to offer every walker or rambler across Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire. This is one of 44 circular walks, each of which incorporates a section of the Millennium Way and is published in partnership with 41 Club.
Upton Snodsbury is located 5 miles east of Worcester. The walk starts and finishes in the car park for The Oak pub, on the A422. If you are not visiting the pub, there is also street parking available nearby in the village. Approximate post code WR7 4NW.
|Start to Bow Brook Footbridge|
Start point: 52.1885 lat, -2.0907 long
Our walk starts from the car park of The Oak, on the A422 just outside the village of Upton Snodsbury. Cross the stile at the bottom corner of the car park then go diagonally left up the field keeping Upton Snodsbury church on your left. Take the metal kissing gate at the top of the field then go half right, towards the corner of a concrete wall to the right of a barn. Here you will find a wooden gate post, and see the first green Millennium Way waymarker. Go 20 paces, keeping the barn to your left, to pass through a metal gate. Continue ahead through farm buildings to find the driveway leading to a road.
|Bow Brook Footbridge to March Hare|
Start point: 52.1838 lat, -2.1065 long
Once across the footbridge follow the Millennium Way waymarker, quarter left up the field just to the right of a large lone oak tree and towards a wire fence ahead of you (where you will find a waymarker on the fence posts).
|March Hare to End|
Start point: 52.1875 lat, -2.112 long
Continue past The March Hare and take the first lane on the right. Ignore the footpath left at the top of the lane, and follow the lane around to the right. Turn first left just after the black and white cottage (signposted Crowle). Take the marked footpath right, through the churchyard of St Leonard's Church, and head for a gap in the top right-hand corner to continue along a narrow path between hedges.

Great App - never get lost! by The Parallax View Best couple of quid I’ve spent in a long time. Walks are well described & it’s easy to see if you’ve wandered off the mapped tracks via GPS. Degree of difficulty is useful too - can choose a 2 Welly, 5 mile walk with a pub at the end for a relaxing Sunday.

Wow what a lovely experience it was using your app worked perfectly from the off for the first time found walks nearby we would have never found, brilliant work guys and gals.
This is a great app. Easy to use. Great selection of walks and very uncomplicated instructions, good simple maps. Other walking apps I have tried can be very confusing, this one is just right. Thank you
I used the app for the first time this afternoon. I lead regular ‘Walking for Health’. The app is terrific!
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!
