Ashwicke to Marshfield

Height Gain:
Possible Starting Points:Ashwicke : Marshfield

An easy flattish walk that can be started from the layby in Ashwick or from Marshfield High Street. The walk is on open footpaths and bridleways and has many patches of flowing garlic and Bluebells in April.

The route from Marshfield to Askwick is along an open bridleway with a wonderful tree tunnel from a large proportion of it with great views over to the St Catherine’s valley glimpsed through the trees.

Marshfield Church stands proud within Marshfield and can be seen from the majority of the walk. We completed this walk in April and there were large wooded area of Wild Garlic between Ashwicke and Marshfield and a wonderful combination of Wild Garlic and Bluebells along the wooded tunnel parts of the route back to Ashwicke.

We loved this walk but what did you think?
