TRANSPORT

 

An inevitable problem  with walking in thinly populated areas is the absence of public transport, requiring the walker to carefully plan a day's activities without very much outside assistance. There are however a significant number of bus routes encountered on the walk, in particular passing through Romsley, Barnt Green, Tardebigge, Flyford Flavell, Cropthorne, Ashton under Hill and Winchcombe. A bus search site is available at this link

 

Barnt Green and Alvechurch also have railway stations.
