Footpaths for all


Alvechurch parish has at its heart the medieval village of Alvechurch with its pretty half-timbered houses nestling in the valley surrounded by idyllic ridges and stretches of countryside. Considered the “gateway to the countryside” it’s crisscrossed by 28 miles or so of public Rights of Way which are maintained and cared for by the A.V.S footpath maintenance group whose volunteers meet for a few hours at weekends to keep these pathways open.

Join a walk


We run monthly led walks – from short around the village strolls to long walks in the countryside. Why not join us?


Walking is ideal if you want to get active, enjoy the outdoors and meet new people.

Maps and routes

If you want to explore independently we’ve got 6 lovely local mapped walking routes that you can use to plan a walk.

You’re welcome to come on any of our walks for free. Once you’ve experienced the views, fun and exhilaration it’s just a case of becoming a member of our friendly AVS community.

Our leader led walks take place across the parish and the surrounding areas throughout the year. If you fancy trying some out yourself the leaflets can be purchased for a small fee from;

  • The Parish Council office

  • The Weighbridge and The Crown public houses.


Got a few burning questions about our walks and maintenance groups?  We are only too pleased to help: (or something like that).

We all love the outdoors, but are there things that could make it even more enjoyable?
