South Staffordshire Railway Walk

The South Staffordshire Railway Walk runs for five and a half miles from Castlecroft at the northern end to Wall Heath in the south, where it continues on to Pensnett. The northern end at Castlecroft extends through Valley Park.

 

The all weather surface makes it ideal for wheelchairs, pushchairs and family cycling. Horse riding is allowed between Greyhound Lane (Penn Halt) and Wombourne Station, and from Wall Heath to Himley Car Park.

 

Refreshments
