A 5.5 mile circular walk from the village of Broughton Hackett in Worcestershire. This pleasant circular walk enjoys the delights of the Worcestershire countryside, taking you through the adjacent White Ladies Aston. The walk incorporates a section of the Millennium Way, where you will be guided by the distinctive green and white Millennium Way waymarkers.

The route includes only gentle gradients but can be muddy in parts. You will need to negotiate several gates plus 9 stiles (some of which dogs may need a lift over). There are many arable fields on route, but you may also come across livestock in some of the fields. There are a couple of short sections of road walking, plus a couple of road crossings of a busy A-road that need care. Allow 2.5 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.

Broughton Hackett is located in the centre of Worcestershire, about 5 miles east of Worcester. The village lies on the A422 road from Worcester to Alcester. The walk starts from The March Hare pub. If you are dining at the pub, there is a pub car park, otherwise please use roadside parking. There is a lay-by just up the road towards Upton Snodsbury. Approximate post code WR7 4BE.

Start point: 52.1876 lat, -2.1121 long
End point: 52.1751 lat, -2.1158 long

We start our walk from The March Hare in Broughton Hackett. Emerging from the car park, turn right onto the main road, then almost immediately turn right down the surfaced lane (passing the leisure centre). Cross over a cattle grid to go gently uphill across the field ahead. Pass under power lines and take the large metal gate ahead, continuing with a fence and hedge on your right. Pass a waymark post in the wire fence on your right to reach a large metal gate in the corner of the field. Here you have joined The Millennium Way and will see the distinctive green Millennium Way waymarker.

Go through the gate and, after a few paces, take the next large gate left into a field. Continue around the edge of the field (with a hedge on your right) to find the far right corner metal gate. Take this gate then go over a bridge and ahead to take the gated hedge gap. Walk slightly left to find a metal gate into a copse. Go ahead through the copse to find a track (which can often be quite muddy.) Go right on the track which becomes a road, passing houses on your left to arrive at a junction of roads.

Start point: 52.1751 lat, -2.1158 long
End point: 52.1742 lat, -2.1254 long

At the junction, take the gap immediately left by a power pole, and continue with a hedge on your left to take a hedge gap leading to the road. Cross the road to take the footpath through the churchyard of St John the Baptist in White Ladies Aston. The name White Ladies Aston derives from an order of Cistercian Nuns from Whitstones, north of Worcester, who were granted land in the parish in the mid-1200s. (You may wish to make a short visit to the church.)

Exit the churchyard by a wide gravel path and take the gate to the road. Go left along the road, pass a wall on your right and continue round the right-hand bend in the road. After about 50 paces, at the end of a red brick barn, follow the fingerpost right to go up a track with a wall and hedge on your right. Leave the path when it swings left, and continue ahead with a hedge on your right to find and cross a (broken) corner stile and bridge into a field.

Go left for 40 paces to the field corner and then go right with a hedge on your left. (Here we leave The Millennium Way). Continue along with the hedge on your left. Go ahead into the next field (keeping the hedge on your left) towards a narrow copse. On reaching the copse, turn right (do not enter the copse) and go up the field with a hedge and the copse to your left. Pass under power lines and take a gap ahead into the next field. After a few paces, take the waymarked path left, through a hedge gap, into the next field (continuing with the hedge on your left).

At the next gap, enter the field left and go ahead, keeping the hedge on your right. After 100 metres, take the waymarked gap right over a wooden footbridge and through a kissing gate into a field. Continue up the field (with a hedge on your right) to take the stile ahead. Follow the waymarker right around the edge of the next field to reach a road, Edwards Lane.

Start point: 52.1742 lat, -2.1254 long
End point: 52.195 lat, -2.1333 long

Go left along the road and, immediately after Spring Cottage, take the footpath right through a wooden gate. Keep close to the right boundary, and follow around the boundary of this grassy area to take the far corner stile into the next field. Go ahead, with a hedge on your right. Stay on the same heading through the field corner gap ahead and continue along the edge of four fields, with a hedge and wooded area to your right, to reach the main road.

Cross over the main road (A422), taking great care as this is a very busy road. Follow the footpath opposite, keeping Churchill Wood on your right. (The route does not enter the wood but you may find a shady nook to take a break and some refreshment.) Take the gap ahead into the next field, immediately going left along the edge of field (with the hedge on your left). At the waymarker post, follow the direction of the arrow to go diagonally right across the field. (If the footpath has not been reinstated, you may have to walk around the field edge instead). Soon another waymarker post comes into view. Take the gap ahead then go over a stile and go downhill.

Just before reaching the road, take the footpath right through a large metal gate and go ahead (keeping the ditch on your left). Take the gated corner field footbridge, cross over the farm track and take the gate into a field. Go diagonally right across the field, under power lines, to take the stile and bridge some 10 paces from the field corner. Go up the next field, keeping the hedge on your left, and cross over the stile to reach the road.

Start point: 52.195 lat, -2.1333 long

Turn right along the road for 500m and, just before the bridge, turn right through a gate and continue along the field edge (with a stream on your left). Take the gate into the next field then go through the gap ahead over a stream. After a few paces, take the waymarked gate left then go right up the field (keeping the hedge on your right).

Go gently uphill, under power lines to take the stile at the corner. Go ahead for 30 paces to take the next stile right, then continue along the next field (with the hedge on your left). Go through a large metal gate and continue ahead towards the hamlet of Broughton Hackett directly ahead. Take the stile (or adjacent metal gate) and pass houses to arrive at a T-junction. Turn right past the attractive church of St. Leonards. At the next T-junction, turn right and follow lane around to the left to reach the main road. Turn left and you are now back to The March Hare where the walk began.
