A circular walk from the village of Meriden in the West Midlands. The walk starts from the medieval stone cross on the village green, reputed to mark the centre of England. Meriden is also the mid-point of the 100 mile long distance walking path known as The Millennium Way, a delightful walk which runs from Pershore to Meriden then down to Middleton Cheney. This circular walk incorporates the two northern sections of the Millennium Way, joined by a short link through the delightful village of Berkswell and the lake at Berkswell Hall. The trail is clearly waymarked with the distinctive black Millennium Way circular waymarkers. The walk includes just a few steady gradients and follows a mixture of tracks, lanes and field paths. You will need to negotiate several gates, kissing gates and footbridges plus 8 stiles, all of which should be suitable for most dogs to pass through. You will be sharing some of the fields with livestock. 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.
