Abbots Bromley and Bagots Park Circular Walk

'Needwood Forest was a large area of ancient woodland in Staffordshire which was largely lost at the end of the 18th century ... The forest was on extensive lands owned by the Berkeley family of Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire, home to extensive stocks of wolf, wild boar and fallow deer ... 490 acres (2.0 km2) of woodland remain, with some parts still open to the public. Jackson Bank located at Hoar Cross is a mature, mixed 80-acre (320,000 m2) woodland still owned by the Duchy of Lancaster, which is open to the public. Bagot's Wood near Abbots Bromley claims to be the largest remaining part of the forest.' [Wikipedia 8 January 2014]

'A walk through history would be the best way to describe this lengthy ramble through rural Staffordshire. The walk takes you to the historic village of Abbots Bromley, where many traditional activities still thrive, before circling the famous woodlands of Bagot Forest, now owned by the Forestry Commission.'
