Appleby Magna

Four walkers met in the Layby in Tamworth Road North of J11 of M42 (SK313107).

It was overcast and turned to drizzle just before we set off. The rain continued for most of the walk, with some heavy rain and some dry spells. We set off Southwards to the M42 island and across the A444 into the A5493 Tamworth Road. Entering the fields on the right we followed the hedges toward Chilcote, Stiking across some fields, until we came onto No Man's Heath Road. Entering the village and turning right we again entered the fields. Crossing two large fields we crossed the A444 into Stretton en le Field. Going along the single road through the village we then followed a track towards the A42. Going through the tunnel under the road we walked alongside the A42 Southwards. After a kilometre we turned left across the fields until we came out onto Tamworth road near our start point. There were a few stiles but mostly gaps in the hedges. Unlike the last walk, there were no crops as the fields had been ploughed/harrowed, with just small growth of crops. There was some mud

but not a problem despite the weather.

Total distance was approximately 5.8 miles.
