Walk Details
This short linear walk is an idyllic woodland ramble along a stile free path in Loxley Valley. It is a haven for nature lovers, with bird life in abundance. It is perfect for a manual wheelchair user.

The walk begins on Rowell Lane S6 6SH (opposite Rowell Bridge Water Pumping Station), where off street parking is available.

The surface of the paths is compacted gravel and is suitable for wheelchairs. The entrance/exit is 93 cm wide at the widest part and can easily accommodate wheelchairs. The path is mainly flat.

The route is clearly visible, just follow the path along the river Loxley. the route continues past the mill pond on your left and then continuing forward the path narrows as you pass by the house. Just after the house, the path turns sharply to the left, continues between two stone walls and comes out onto a broad flat lane (Black Lane).

Manual wheelchair users may need a helpful push up the short incline. You emerge onto on a very quiet country lane. You can continue along the road to Loxley Road or return the way that you came.

There are several benches along this walk.
