Introduction

This walk starts by heading up over Hobb Hill and across fields to Broughton.
Broughton has Broughton Castle a country house dating to the 14-16C of Baron Saye and Sele of the Fiennes family but this is not directly on the route.
From Broughton we head to Salt Way , an ancient road pre-dating Roman times hat used to run from Droitwich to London primarily for the transportation of salt.
We then cut back across fields to Wykham Lane. There is a good farm shop at Wykham Farm that may provide an interesting aside. From here the route passes a lake as we trek on to Bloxham Grove and then back to the starting point.
