An enchanting circular rural route taking in the hamlets of Coxbank, Wilkesley, Calverhall and Ightfield.
Bird watchers will enjoy stopping to view the pools at Lodmore Lane, (north of Ightfield) and Tittenley Pool, (south of Wilkesley,) both of which are adjacent to the lanes on this route.
There are options to leave and return to Audlem either by the towpath or by a short section of the A525 east of Audlem and back lanes.
The exit from Audlem is achieved either by:
Route L2 (19.6 miles-easy)- Back lanes to the south of Audlem.
Route L2* (17.8 miles-moderate)- The canal towpath from Audlem Wharf to Bridge 76.
On both options, the crossing of the A529 road at Coxbank has limited line of sight and requires great care.
