Walk Inspiration - Millennium Way Stage 18
As we nearly enter the festive season, I only just manage to fit in my monthly walk on the Millennium Way.
This is another short leg, with some repetition from Stage 17. The order to do the walks gets a bit confused around middle England and for the next 6 legs, it looks like I will be seeing some of the same paths from different perspectives.
Today, I park up at Packwood Hall. Having not seen any Family Mapp visitors before, it's had me twice in 6 weeks, my parents once and they are even talking about going back for the carol service.
Turn right out the car park and once again up to the Church at Packwood Hall.

Meet some fellow Labradoodle owners - although you would have been hard pressed to guess. Mine wins the Doodle beauty contest paws down.
Get to the road at Chessett's Wood Farm and I can see a sign on the footpath post. This invariably spells bad news and means something is up. True to form, the sign details that a bridge is in poor condition and the footpath is closed for a month.
What to do? The map shows no alternative paths and I would be a poor adventurer if I turned back at the first sign of trouble. Anyway, it may not turn out to be that bad.

That obstacle overcome, I just need to gentlly walk through fields with evil horse guardians.
Over the railway and a quick diversion to the canal for a cache. I would have saved it for the next leg, but it promised a Travel Bug. Alas, it was empty except for the log book, so I make good and place one of my own in it.
