7 Mile circular walk in and around Comer Wood on the Dudmaston Estate. From the carpark you descend into Comer Wood to pass three pools and through the woods to the main National Trust car park. From here you head up to Heat Meadow, where you will find toilets and the National Trust Cafe. After the meadow we head left and out of the woods crossing a field to the Forest Oak. We now loop back toward Comer Wood via the lane, shorty after entering the woods we again leave via fields to Crag Rock and then past Mose Farm we head back for a short trip through Comer Wood. There is then a final 1 mile loop to the south before heading back to the carpark. For full route directions please see Country Walking Magazine.

The first time we did this walk just after entering Comer Woods for the 2nd time we missed a left turn and had to back track a couple of times, we never found the correct path but after a short loop through the undergrowth we found ourselves on the correct path as we left the woods. As this was our fist walk of the year we were tiring towards the end so when we reached the lane instead of going left and heading out on the final loop south we turned right and headed straight back to the car park. We are hoping to do this walk again in the next month and will hopefully find the correct path in the woods and go on to complete the full walk.
