Audlem Online has been publishing over the past week a selection of six local walks, all featuring the canal at some stage. These walks have been selected for a new leaflet which is in preparation. Once printed (and it will be a low cost, one colour production), it will be distributed at Audlem's Tourist Information Centre at Williams' newsagents.
If anyone spots any problems with the directions given, please let the webteam know. For those unfamiliar with the area, the suggested walks should be used in conjunction with the Parish Paths map or OS Explorer 257, available at Williams' newsagents or the Post Office. The directions will also be published in the 'Visiting Audlem' section of Audlem Online — click Information/Visiting Audlem/Local walks.
A gentle 30 minute walk but with a number of stiles. The Vale path can sometimes be muddy.
From the Square, turn left from the Buttermarket and walk down Stafford Street to the Post Office. Turn right into School Lane. At the bottom fork right and then veer left at the small Green, cross the footbridge and stile, then immediately turn right along the stream to another stile to enter Audlem Vale. There is a steep drop to the right so care is needed for a few yards.
Follow the clear footpath for 300m to the left of the stream (it can be muddy) before rising leftwards up across a meadow towards a stile where you join the Shropshire Union canal. Turn right and return to the village where you leave the canal just before the bridge. Turn right (the Bridge Inn might tempt you to linger) and return to the Square.
Distance 1 mile.
