I devised another walk starting in Broome, Worcestershire. This is a variation on the other walk I posted on this site, which can be found here and a walk I used to do with my dog. It's a very short walk in beautiful countryside. A short detour is recommended to include a pub lunch at the Bell & Cross, in Holy Cross.
The walk starts at the village hall car park. This is next to St. Peter's church, a small church that seats about 70 people and surrounded by a well-maintained church-yard. A lot of walkers stop-off at Broome church in the Summer to eat their packed-lunches while sitting on one of the benches in the church-yard. The church is set in a quiet Hamlet.
Leave Broome by a lane that reaches a T-junction. Turn left here, walking on a bridleway that snakes around Wheatlands House.
The views of Clent and Walton Hill open up as you leave Wheatlands House behind.
When you have crossed three fields you will come to a narrow lane. Turn right up this lane, towards Holy Cross.
A short walk along the lane brings you to Holy Cross.
Walk down a grassy bank. This will bring you to the village rec. and the start of Hossil Lane
About three-quarters of the way along Hossil Lane you will see a stile on your right that crosses a wide field. This is a well trodden path and is well defined no matter what crop is in the field...or not, as was the case when I came to cross it.
You will come to a farm track once you have crossed the field. Turn right and walk in the direction of Red Hall Farm.
There were lovely daffodils on the side of the track by Red Hall Farm.
When you get back to the car park it's worth having a look at the selection of books on offer in the old telephone box.
