A circular route from Shustoke Reservoir to Foul End, near Coleshill. The walk is a mixture of field walking and road walking. There are two stiles plus several gates and some of the fields will be holding both cattle and horses, so take care with dogs.

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!

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