An easy walk around Packwood House, going through the park and up to the church. Packwood was transformed by Graham Baron Ash in the 1920s, from a 17th-century farmhouse into a dream-like vision of a Tudor country home.

2. At the junction, take the footpath on the right and follow the way marked posts across the fields to the lane.
3. Cross the lane to join a footpath on the opposite side, following this along a track. Before the farmhouse, turn left to continue along the footpath taking care to walk to the right of the field and over the stile hidden in a hedgerow. Walk across fields to the road, keeping the pond to your left.
4. Turn right along the road for a short way before turning right along Glasshouse Lane, signposted for Packwood.

6. Follow this footpath around the Hall to St Giles Church.
7. Walk to the far right of the Churchyard to a kissing gate towards the end of the row of cottages, signed the Millenium Way. Follow this path along the fields which leads you to Packwood Lane.

9. Turn right along the Avenue to take you back to the front of the house.
