Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

Day 3 of the 101 mile Heart of England Way. Using a point to point route using public transport.
On leaving Lichfield, don't forget to look back and say goodbye to the Cathedral as the route heads gently uphill along tracks and field edges. There is a pig farm on the first section and lots of vistas looking over towards Birmingham. The path generally follows fields until the mid-section where the scars of HS2 construction can be seen. Heading uphill into more rural countryside, the second half of the walk is greener with several quiet country lanes with stunning farm houses and stables.
The last section into Drayton Bassett is along a country road with fast traffic, so just be aware of this and then a short section of road walking to get across to Wilnecote Station.
This stop has infrequent services, so do check beforehand.
