Walk instructions
Start from Broseley Library / Health Centre car park.
Turn left out of the car park and left again into Hockley Road. Go past the Duke of York pub and up the hill, turning right at the top into Swan Street, and then immediate left onto a tarmac footpath - Mill Lane. Follow this path until it widens out into a street. Go past an old workshop on your left, then turn left into Chapel Lane.

Pass the old baptist chapel and house on your right, then follow the bridle way past the kennels and up past the Deer Leap woods to Old Park farmhouse. Go through the metal gate and follow the path alongside the drive to exit onto Lodge Lane.

Turn left down the lane, taking a clear bridleway on you left after approx. 100 metres. Follow this straight-as-a-die bridleway back towards Broseley, going through a gate to enter the Fiery Fields*. Go straight ahead, passing an old oak on your right, and taking the clear track through the fields. Pass the remains of a lightning blasted oak and a drinking trough, before going through another gate onto a scruffy lane, which is usually muddy.

This brings you to Bridgnorth Road, where you turn left, and, after approx. 100 metres, left again into the health centre car park

*Fiery Fields - so called because of the underlying coal deposits, which caught fire and burned for some time in the 19thC.
