I live in the Ditch, it ain't that bad, honest gov.
The disused railway runs along side the road past the Hospital and you can only navigate short sections of it, Astwood to Studley would be easier down the hill towards Sambourne as its all down hill towards the cricket ground.
Redditch has a large amount of cycle ways that are route marked with numbers and colours to make it easy to navigate, although I find them impossible.
