Black Pear 50

84 km / 52 miles

Staffordshire, Worcestershire
This figure-of-eight walk covers a scenic route mainly in North Worcestershire, straying briefly into Staffordshire, all within easy reach of Birmingham. Passing the Kinver rock houses, it reaches the Severn-side town of Bewdley via part of the Wyre Forest. It follows the Severn Valley and then James Brindley’s Staffordshire Canal to reach Stourport-on-Severn, and then passes historic Hartlebury Castle and Harvington Hall to return to the start in Hagley. The second, shorter, loop takes walkers over the Clent, Waseley and Lickey Hills, with their extensive views. Regular train services from Hagley allow the walk to be broken down into shorter sections.
