Route L14 – Bearstone & Woore Fruit Farms (17 miles-moderate)

Enjoy a summer fruit picking cycle ride with two local fruit farms along the way, Bearstone Fruit Farm and Woore Fruit Farm. The latter has a cafe and an innovative concrete free eco-house built with straw.
It is recommended that opening hours and produce available are checked before setting out.

The route leaves Audlem eastwards, but soon turns south to Norton in Hales, where it then strikes off to the north-east along back lanes passing Bearstone Fruit Farm before crossing the A51 London Road at Ireland's Cross and approaching Woore Fruit Farm by turning east for a few meters on the A525.

Once past the short section of A525 leaving Audlem, this route is largely on back roads and lanes and travels through the pretty village of Norton in Hales.

  • There is a fairly lengthy climb of moderate gradient to the north of Norton in Hales. However, it's worth the effort as the views from the summit can be stunning. The remainder of the route is fairly flat.
  • The road crossing of the A525 at the end of School Lane requires care, as does the short section of A525 leaving Audlem.
  • Care should be taken crossing the busy A51 and on the final approach to Woore Fruit Farm on the A525.
