The options and variations are mind boggling -  how incredibly lucky we are to have so many miles of beautiful walking available to us.
So many paths, so little time

Don't overlook England's canal network, Beth - towpaths make very pleasant walking.
Oh yes! :D  [size=78%]I used to live almost on a canal in the West Mids and loved the walks around there. The Canal and River Trust website shows them all on a single map too [/size] 8)

I like your linked canal route, Stube, thanks  :)

I recall a good towpath walk from Birmingham, down the Grand Union Canal, then west on the North Stratford Canal, finally returning on the Worcester and Birmingham Canal, a fine 36 mile loop.

..and you can walk through the Netherton Tunnel!

Thanks Richard, that sounds like an interesting option  8)  I used to live close to the canal in Stourbridge and have had a few lovely canal walks in that region. It would be nice to go back  :)
