A circular walk from the village of Balsall Common, near Coventry in the West Midlands. The route meanders across mostly flat farmland and open countryside. For the first part of the walk, you will enjoy the delights of the Millennium Way where you will be guided by the distinctive black waymarkers. The route is mostly flat with only a few gentle slopes. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates, footbridges and steps plus 11 stiles (all of which should be suitable for most dogs to manage). You may come across livestock in some of the fields. There are a couple of short sections of road walking and you will also need to cross a dual carriageway at one point. Allow 2.5 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.

A good walk although some sections very overgrown. We used public transport and joined near Berkswell station a short walk to Baulk lane near the finish/start.
