Getting There

A circular pub walk from the village of Meer End in the West Midlands. The route leads you through mainly flat countryside, incorporating an interesting church, pleasant woodland and the delightful Kenilworth Castle. The walk incorporates a section of the Millennium Way where you will be guided by the distinctive black Millennium Way waymarkers. The terrain is relatively flat and the route follows a mixture of field and woodland paths. There are a couple of sections on quiet lanes, plus a stretch on the grass verge of an A-road. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates and footbridges plus 4 stiles. The stiles are fairly easy, with gaps suitable for dogs, and can be bypassed by gaps to the side if needed. You will be sharing several of the fields with livestock. Allow 4.5 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.

Meer End is located about half way between Balsall Common and Kenilworth and is accessed via the A452 and then the A4177 Meer End Lane. The walk starts and finishes at the Tipperary Inn. There is a pub car park if you are having refreshments, otherwise please use roadside parking on Table Oak Lane. Approximate post code CV8 1PW.

Nice circular trail. Kenilworth is good to stop for lunch or explore the castle.

Lovely scenery throughout - great views approaching Kenilworth Castle, albeit some slight confusion with a corn field (and a very angry dog) right at the end of the walk!

Lovely walk. Beware the potato field in section 4 just past Rudfyn Manor. You can not cross the field at the oak tree and will have to circumnavigate the huge field as the crop is very dense and obviously the potties are banked up making it impassable and dangerous, the road is not an option as fast and narrow verges. This problem will go once the field is harvested in the next few weeks.

Wonderful walk through countryside. Taking in view's of Kenilworth castle. Nice to do this walk in dry weather, as our previous time was a very muddy experience.

Enjoyable walk with lots of scenic views. However you have to walk across four fields and as late September and they had been ploughed it was hard work crossing. Also got lost right at the end as overgrown and had to improvise. Generally pleasant with few hard bits.
