Another great walk in the Shustoke area! Here's a bit of a longer walk in this area; overall it's a really good trek, we did make some minor adjustments to the route and one area where the path no longer exists. At the beginning of the walk you'll have to take a slight detour. As you approach the train line you'll see a sign saying that the path has now been changed. It's a pretty simple detour, just head to the top right end of the field and you'll see a brick bridge, you just need to follow the path over the bridge and to the left. It's pretty well sign posted. The rest of the walk is great, usually I'd be a bit disappointed when I find myself having to walk on the road side but most of the roads on this walk are really quiet and a real treat to walk down, they can get narrow though so you do need to be mindful of the occasional car. Most of the walk consists of farmer's fields and you'll find the map on the app comes in handy as sometimes the route isn't always obvious. What I will say though is that as you're in the final third of the walk, walking towards Atherstone Road, you'll come towards a house and just to the right of it you'll see a public footpath leading along side a tall fence. We decided to take a chance and try this path instead as we didn't fancy carrying on down the road. The path hasn't been walked that often and was a little overgrown but it did feel like more of an adventure; plus you'll see some truly stunning houses. A small warning though; there is a part where you'll need to crouch and shimmy down a bit of an embankment but it's all smooth sailing after that. Overall; great walk and one I'll definitely be returning to!

An excellent walk in a very picturesque area. This trail mainly consists of paths through farmer's fields and walking alongside streams, creeks and brooks. To make things better there are two different pubs on this Trail; stop off half way for a rejuvenating pint at The Griffin Inn or have a celebratory pint at The Plough at the end of the trail. I opted for The Plough and it was a lovely pub. Depending on how the weather has been you can expect some fields to be quite muddy, mainly due to roaming cattle but nothing too difficult to navigate. Overall I couldn't recommend this walk enough, and to top it all off along the path you'll be enthralled by the distinctive smell of wild garlic.

Another walk where the use of the map comes in handy as paths over fields can be indistinct. Managed to see a Highland cattle.
