Enchmarsh and Chatwall

A walk from Cardington, along little-known lanes and byways, through unlikely-sounding places. Enchmarsh sounds Tolkienesque, Yell Bank noisy and Hoar Edge cold. Is Chatwall something to do with Facebook? We’re walking across and along watersheds: Yell Bank separates waters which flow northwards, to join the Severn near Cound, from those flowing south-east, via the Onny and the Teme, to enter the Severn near Worcester. We walk along the minor ridge which bridges the gap between Yell Bank and Hoar Edge: to our right, it forms Bullhill Brook, then Coundmoor Brook, joining Cound Brook just before it reaches the Severn. To our left, water flows by a more westerly route, but also enters the Severn via Cound Brook. Well I think it’s interesting…
