A circular pub walk from Arrow Mill near Alcester in Warwickshire. Arrow Mill is surrounded by a spectacular, secluded riverside setting and has been beautifully refurbished to create the ideal country pub. The walking route heads north, visiting the isolated church in Arrow and emerging into the meadows alongside the River Arrow. A quick loop around the Roman market town of Alcester reveals a wonderful mix of historic buildings, some dating from the 1400s, before the riverside meadows lead you back to Arrow Mill. The walk is relatively flat, with just a few short slopes along the way. It follows a mixture of roadside pavements and grass meadow paths. The meadow paths can be muddy at times and, as some of the meadows are flood plains for the River Arrow, the walk should not be attempted after unusually prolonged periods of heavy rain. You will be sharing some of the meadows with sheep, so take particular care with dogs. You will need to negotiate a few kissing gates, two wooden stiles (with fence gaps suitable for dogs up to Labrador size) plus two footbridges that have metal bar-type stiles at each end (these should be simple for dogs to negotiate, but humans may need to stretch a little to clear them!). Allow 2 hours. Show more

A walk near Coughton Court, a well-known National Trust property in Warwickshire. The walk combines the delights of both town and country walking. With chance to visit Coughton Court and taking you through the historic Roman town of Alcester, you will enjoy riverside paths, country lanes and gentle farmland. The walk will give you a flavour of The Millennium Way taking you across mostly flat countryside, clearly marked with the distinctive black Millennium Way circular waymarkers. The walk is almost entirely flat with just some very gentle slopes. You will need to negotiate some kissing gates and bridges, but there are no stiles on route. The vast majority of the fields are arable, but you will cross two pastures towards the end that are likely to be holding sheep. Allow 3 hours. The Millennium Way is a beautiful 100 mile walk in the heart of England, from Pershore in Worcestershire to Middleton Cheney in Northamptonshire. The route was created by the 41 Club as a community project, with something to offer every walker or rambler across Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire. This is one of 44 circular walks, each of which incorporates a section of the Millennium Way and is published in partnership with 41 Club. Show more
