Stourbridge Common and Fen Ditton

A short, circular walk from Riverside to Fen Ditton via Stourbridge Common and Ditton Meadow.

Length: Approximately 2.37 miles

Starting at Riverside, follow the bank along the river, passing the Green Dragon bridge on your left and Stourbridge Common on your right.

Proceed under the railway bridge to reach Ditton Meadow. As the main path branches off to the right, continue straight on over the small footbridge. After passing through several open gates, you will reach Fen Ditton.

At the Church, turn right down the path, noting the solar powered lights. On reaching the junction, turn right again to return to Ditton Meadow.

Follow path along the southern edge of the meadow until it bears right. At this point, head straight on towards a small gate in the hedges. This will take you over a footbridge.

Head left towards the grey footbridge over the railway line. As you cross, note the guide rails for bicycles on the steps. As you descend, you will find yourself back on Stourbridge Common.

Proceed along the track until you reach a made-up path. Cross over this path and continue past the playground on your left to reach your starting point at Riverside.
