Common Walks

The Common is a wonderful location for some fantastic walks and the pub can be a great starting place, so park your car in the car park and try one of these suggestions below. When you return you can refresh yourself with a nice drink and if you have really worked up an appetite let us take away the thought of going home to sort out your food and let us tempt you with our varied menu and no washing up.


Remember you can walk anywhere across Bringsty Common, except in people's gardens, so there's no need to keep to any path, if you want to be a free spirit. It's a wonderful place for walking of all kinds – long, short or very short! There is an endless range of possible walks on the common but below are three suggestions, by clicking on your chosen walk it will open in a new window for you to save or print.


We hope you enjoy your walk and will call in to refresh and refuel.


The 30 minute leg-stretcher (one mile)

 

With your back to the pub turn right and walk past the first house on your right. Ignore the Worcestershire Waywaymarker but instead follow the path past some trees on your right. Emerging from the trees, you could here turn right and make a direct assault on the Jubilee but instead bear slightly left on a level path with the hill on your right. After 300 yards, above the house with the lake, Barratt’s Bridge, the path begins to bear right uphill and will take you to the top of the Jubilee.  Enjoy the panoramic views from the viewfinder on top. Descend through the trees, past the trig. point down to the Bringsty noticeboard  and turn right back to the pub.

The one hour stroll (two miles)

 

With your back to the pub,turn left and pick up the Worcestershire Way at the waymarker. Follow the grass path and then  join the stone track. Turn right and follow this track for 300 yards  past the converted chapel on your left till you come to a cross-roads of paths. Cider Mill Farm is ahead of you but turn left up the hill in a deep sunken track, or, if this is muddy, uses the grassy path running parallel to this up the hill. At the top of the sunken track, pick up a stone track which will take you to the football pitch and Bringsty’s six-ways junction. Take the third path on the left (though others will do) and climb onto a short but exhilarating walk along the ridge and past the massive Gospel Oak (now fenced off) marking the parish between Whitbourne and Linton parishes.  Carry on to meet the track to the pub at the Bringsty noticeboard. Cross the track and go straight ahead to the top of the Jubilee and enjoy the panoramic views from the viewfinder on top.  Now go straight on and after 50 yards bear left on a grass path which winds down the hill. Above the house with the lake, Barratt’s Bridge, the path levels out and you follow the path keeping the Jubilee on your left. You then pass a house on your left before reaching the pub.

90 minute stroll (three miles)

 

With your back to the pub turn left and pick up the Worcestershire Way at the waymarker. Follow the grass path and then join the stone track. Turn right and follow this stone track for 300 yards past the converted chapel on your left till you come to a cross-roads of paths.  Cider Mill Farm is ahead of you but turn left up the hill in a deep sunken track, or, if this is muddy, use the grassy path running parallel to this up the hill.  At the top of the sunken track, pick up a stone track which will take you to the football pitch. Turn right by the side of the pitch and at the half-way line take the left hand fork over the common. This pleasant ride brings you to a stone track. Go straight across and follow the path through some trees to a new house that is being built. Here cut across a grass track to another stone track and turn right. This track takes you through some trees and past CopCastleand Brackenberry. At Belvue, turn sharp right past Brackentops. Continue ahead straight across a stone track and you will soon reach the football pitch and six-ways junction. 

 

Take the fourth “exit” (two o’clock),though others will do, and climb onto a short but exhilarating walk along the ridge  and past the massive Gospel Oak, marking the boundary between Whitbourne and Linton parishes.  Carry on to meet the track to the pub at the Bringsty notice board. Now cross the track and go straight ahead to the top of the Jubilee and enjoy the panoramic views from the viewfinder on top. Now go straight on and after 50 yards bear left on a grass path which winds down the hill.  Above the house with the lake, Barratt’s Bridge, the path levels out and you follow the path keeping the Jubilee on your left. You then go past a house on the left and back to the pub.
