This week, Audlem Online is publishing a series of local walks as the countryside is looking at its finest. Today, we look at a circuit to the south via the canal towpath. Highfields Circuit Allow 2.5 to 3 hours.

From the Square go west on Shropshire St past the Methodist Church and turn left at the canal through a gate. Walk up the towpath for over 2 miles to the sixth bridge (No. 72) near Adderley. Turn left and pass through Hawksmoor Farm, sometimes having to go through or over several gates. Follow the concreted track to its end. Continue on the rougher track but go straight ahead through a gate when the track veers left.

Cross the field past a line of oak trees with fine views of Highfields to the right. Veer left onto the Highfields Farm road and walk towards the distant Lodge where you join a lane.

Turn left and follow it until Bagley Lane where you turn left. After 300m, opposite a converted barn, take the footpath to the right, over two stiles, past a small pond, to a stile in the field corner. Follow the right edge of a field to a stile. Bear left across another field, always keeping the hedge to your left, before reaching a stile and lane. Go straight over to a track to the right of a cottage.

After 200m the track becomes a metalled lane. Follow it to a small lane to the left. Cross the stile and head towards Audlem on the clear path with fine views of St James' Church. At the bottom of the hill negotiate two stiles, cross the footbridge and small Green, turn left and follow the lane up to the Square.
