Route Outline

The highlight of this Worcestershire walk on the eastern outskirts of Bromsgrove is the Tardebigge Locks on the Worcester and Birmingham Canal. The flight of 30 locks raises the level of the canal over 220 feet. The walk passes all the locks in the flight from lock 29 at Stoke Pound to lock 58 after which the canal passes through a tunnel. The section of canal was opened in the early 1800's and was built to link Birmingham with the River Severn at Worcester.
