Beacon Way

16 miles (25 km)

This is the section of the Beacon Way from Sandwell to Chasewater, taking in the nature reserves, canals and woodland around Walsall.
You start by the restored, Victorian Sandwell Park Farm in West Bromwich and head through the lovely Sandwell Valley Country Park. You continue past Rushall Junction and onto Barr Beacon where there are splendid views of the surrounding countryside. Pleasant waterside sections along the Rushall and Wyrley and Essington Canals lead you to the finish point at Chasewater with its beautiful lake, and heritage Chasewater Railway.
