Over recent days, Audlem Online has been re-publishing a series of local walks as, weather permitting, this is an ideal time of year for local exploration. Today, we look at one of the most popular circuits of just over 2 miles, involving the best of the run of canal locks to the south of the village, probably one of the best lowland walks in England. The walk can be used in conjunction with the Audlem Parish Paths map or OS Explorer 257.Shropshire Union Canal/Bagley Lane
A 40 minute to an hour's circuit
From the Square, head west along Shropshire Street, past the Methodist church to the canal where you turn left to descend to the towpath through a gate. Head up the canal past numerous locks, pass under one bridge to the second bridge where you turn sharp left immediately after the bridge to join Bagley Lane. Turn right and after some bends, turn left in to Wood Orchard Lane.
After 600m turn left through a farm gate next to a cottage. After 200m the track becomes a lane. Follow it to where a small lane goes to the left. Cross the stile on the left at the junction and head towards Audlem on the clear path which gives fine views of St James' Church and the village. 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.
