A circular walk from the village of Berkswell, near Coventry in the West Midlands. The route takes in some attractive countryside and farmland. During the walk, you will enjoy a short section of the Millennium Way, the route being clearly marked by the distinctive black waymarkers. The route is mostly flat with only a few gentle slopes. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates plus 9 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 on roads. Allow 2 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.

Easy to follow, fairly enjoyable walk. Had to keep my dog on his lead the whole time which was a shame. A farmers dog chased us at one point so be careful and keep moving. A couple of the passageways were very narrow with overgrown nettles so I’d advise wearing protective clothing.

Couldn’t even find the starting point gate from the very unclear directions from the car park so not having any faith in the rest of the directions abandoned the walk. Hope the rest of the walks on this app are more clear. ADMIN RESPONSE: The best way to navigate the walks is to use the live GPS Map on the iFootpath App. This shows your live location (a blue dot) on the route (a red line) and will always keep you on track. There are full user guides for the App on the iFootpath website.

I quite enjoyed the route. the only issue I had was that just after point 2 in the map, you had to essentially go through what looked like a farm the path was blocked by farm dogs who were loose and didn't seem particularly friendly towards walkers. Had to double back to the road and cut that bit out. so to future walkers, I'd miss that bit out. ADMIN RESPONSE: Glad you enjoyed the walk and thanks for letting us know about the farm dogs. We can confirm that the loop from Waypoint 2 does follow official public rights of way, first alongside the railway and then through a field with the farm buildings to your right. If you felt threatened by farm dogs you certainly did the right thing by using the road instead - and good advice should the same thing happen to future walkers. You could report this matter to the local County Council, as having threatening dogs loose on a right of way is a reportable offence.
