Long Littleton Loop

About this walk

This route takes you through lovely countryside, past ancient churches and traditional farmhouses, through small hedgerow-bound fields and out under the wide open skies along the vast Severn Estuary. Click here to download the walk leaflet.

Length

7 kms – about 2.5 leisurely hours, starting at the White Hart pub.

Under foot

The walk follows public footpaths with short sections of quiet country lanes. Although the lanes are quiet, do take care as they are narrow in places. You may encounter cyclists and horse riders as well as cars. There is one stile along this route. Please note: in winter and wet weather, wellies are a must for this walk!

Food and drink

The White Hart in Littleton is on the route. Oldbury’s Community Shop and Anchor Pub are about a half a kilometre from St Arilda’s Church.

Parking

You can park in the village; please park sensibly. If you’d like to use The White Hart’s car park, please ask first.

Respect, Protect, Enjoy

Always follow the Countryside Code.

Park sensibly – don’t block gates or drives. Leave gates as you find them. Leave farm animals and machinery alone.  If you think an animal’s in distress, alert the farmer. Keep to the public right of way.

Leave no trace of your visit and take your litter home. Keep your dog under effective control and pick up after your pet – dog mess can harm livestock. It is good practice to keep your dog on a lead around livestock; however, if cattle or horses try to chase your dog, it’s safer for both of you to let your dog off the lead to run away.

Plan ahead, dress for the weather, and wear appropriate clothing. You may want to bring snacks and water on your walk. Be aware you may not have a mobile signal in places during your walk.
