Parking: Oversley Green. There is no useful Postcode. 

Roadside parking at SP 092 570 close to the bridge over the River Arrow.

The big red marker labelled Alcester Town Football club in the centre of the Google map linked to below is next to the parking area. 

This is NOT at the Alcester Town Football club that is a green marker over to the right of the screen - this caused some confusion the last time we parked here.

The walk is approximately 8 miles and combines footpaths, tracks and some lanes. 

There are about 10 stiles all in good condition. 

The entry to Oversley wood might be a little awkward if there has been a lot of rain. 

Most of the walk is easy terrain but there is an ascent up to the top of Grove Hill and then the descent from it.

Hopefully, Oversley Wood will still have an impressive display of Bluebells and other wild flowers.

NOTES FOR LEADERS AND RAMBLERS

Leaders are requested to give advance notice of details and grade of ramble and appoint a backmarker. They will also ensure the group follow the Countryside Code - i.e. single file through crops, use right hand side on roads, use stiles where provided, and gates to be left as they were found. They will also advise if a pub stop and/or lunch are intended.

PACE of WALK

Leaders are reminded they set & control the pace of the walk to reflect  the differing abilities of the group. They do not allow the pace to be forced by other members. Walking should be enjoyable for all members.

RAMBLERS HEALTH AND SAFETY

Ramblers join walks at their own risk, and for their own safety are requested to stay behind the leader and in front of the back marker. 
It is advisable to wear suitable footwear and to take sufficient fluids to drink with you. 
Leaders and ramblers should be aware that 999 or 112 should be dialled in case of injury or collapse or where health is giving serious cause for concern. ‘Better safe than sorry.’
