pub walk

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.

Super walk around Alcester. Nice drink and food at Arrow Mill also. Definitely recommend this walk. Ground is flat, good for dogs. Could get muddy in parts when wet. Lots of places to stop for drink / food in Alcester.
