A few notes on The Town and Country Walk

The entire route can be followed using a good street map such as an A-Z. Ordance Survey Explorer map 219 Wolverhampton and Dudley or Landranger 150. If you have a GPS unit which supports GPX files download the route here.

The initial section from Bilston Bus Station to Peascroft Wood and the start of Central Avenue is exactly the same route as The Bilston Trail, which means you can easily switch between the two at this point.   In view of the length of the walk not everyone will have the stamina or the level of fitness to complete the entire 7 Miles at one go (before you ask Yes I did do it all at one go!) so here's a selection of points where the walk can be left with Public Transport links back to Bilston.  No point on the walk is much more than a Mile from Bilston Centre! Study a map of the area and Bus Maps issued by Network West Midlands and you will see that virtually the whole walk is within a 15 Minute walk of a Bus Route

Bus Services can change with very little notice please check before undertaking the walk.  Full PublicTransport information available from Network West Midlands

Since this walk was originally created a few of the 'landmarks have changed.  The former Stonefield School has been demolished. The new Bert Williams Leisure Centre has been completed along with The South Wolverhampton and Bilston Academy The Grapes Pool has been restored and landscaped. The original path to Millfields Road has been blocked off.
