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.
