Market Drayton area


The walk starts from near the swimming baths.  We make our way up the road to Walkmill Bridge and join a path that will take us into Walkmill  Meadows.  We then follow Bottom Lane and up past Buntingsdale Hall. We leave the footpath to walk along a lane by Old Colehurst Manor. From here we cross fields to come out at the top of Sandy Lane. After crossing the A529 we walk down to Tyrley Wharf where we join the canal to walk back into Drayton.

Distance is approx.9 miles but may be a bit more.
