Shareshill Walks
1 mile circular, "all weather" fitness walk
This route is approximately one mile in length and being "circular" can be joined at any point along it. It passes the key buildings facilities of the village including the pub for those requiring a break!

Most of the route is along pavements but be aware that there are two short sections of road without a pavement: Old Cannock Road and by the side of the school grounds in Saredon Road. Don't forget to walk on the right hand side facing any on-coming traffic.
The route also uses three short footpaths and the church driveway.

Shareshill Countryside Walks - Boots recommended !

Shareshill village is fortunate in being surrounded by a network of country lanes, bridleways, footpaths and rights of way across privately owned land. Whilst the lanes are kept free by motorised traffic, the other routes depend upon usage to keep them open.
Please follow the countryside code by respecting property, leaving gates as you find them, keeping any dogs under control and leaving no litter. If there is a cropped field to cross, walkers must keep in single file.

From time to time require action from Staffordshire County Council officers.

Staffordshire County Council's Rights of Way team is tasked with overseeing a massive 2800 mile network.

These routes have been planned by John Parton who has numbered each route for convenience only. Designated rights of way are numbered separately by the county council.

He advises taking a detailed Ordnance Survey map to avoid problems such as Pathfinder 891 Wolverhampton (North) which is 2.5 inches to I mile. (in old money). Being a "right of way" does not guarantee that the landowner has maintained access.
