For Lesbians, Bi Women and Women Allies

Boot Women is a walking group for women, primarily lesbians, based in Birmingham and the surrounding areas. Our walks take place on the second Sunday of the month.

October's Boot Women walk will be a gentle 5 mile circular walk from the Oakley Arms pub  in Brewood (pronounced "Brood!") in South Staffordshire.October's Boot Women walk will be a gentle 5 mile circular walk from the Oakley Arms pub  in Brewood (pronounced "Brood!") in South Staffordshire.

It crosses arable fields and follows quiet tracks and lanes with Belvide Reservoir and the former Black Ladies Priory to take in along the way. There is plenty of wildlife to enjoy, including a wealth of wildfowl on the reservoir which is managed as a nature reserve. There is also some interesting history to this area.The walk is relatively flat with just a few gentle slopes. There are no stiles or kissing gates on route, just a few single bridle gates and one sleeper bridge to negotiate. The paths can be muddy or waterlogged at times and they are also rutted and uneven in part so good boots are a must.

Brewood is a small village in South Staffordshire, located about 11 miles south of Stafford and easily accessed from the A5. The Oakley Arms is located on Kiddemore Green Road, between Brewood and the small hamlet of Kiddemore Green. It is a luxurious pub with a great menu and fantastic views over a lake  for after walk drinking/dining should you wish.
