Villagers enjoy community walk through Barnt Green beauty spots
3:00pm Sunday 6th October 2013 in Local
HUNDREDS of walkers enjoyed a community walk through the beauty spots of Barnt Green.
At the event, held on September 28, there were four guided walks varying in length from 2.5 miles to 6.5 miles.
Organised by Barnt Green Parish Council, the walks were designed to pass the Worcester and Birmingham Canal, Upper and Lower Bittell Reservoirs, Cofton Church, and Lickey Visitors Centre and woods.
The walks celebrated the recent agreement with Worcestershire County Council to sign and promote new footpath, the Barnt Green Circular.
Worcestershire Countryside volunteers officer Amanda Hill, who led a popular walk from Barnt Green to Upper Bentley reservoir, said: “I am delighted with the new Barnt Green Circular Walk.
“In the next few weeks the county council will publish the route and erect signage along the footpath to enable walkers throughout the county, and beyond, to enjoy the beautiful and varied countryside surrounding Barnt Green.”
Charles Hotham, Barnt Green Parish Council vice chairman added that he had been delighted with the turnout, which had been helped by perfect weather and a successful pig roast.
