The walk starts at The Throckmorton pub just down the road from Coughton Court NT property. Coughton is a Grade I listed English Tudor country house, on the main road between Studley and Alcester. We head towards Coughton Park Wood, a mainly commercial woodland. From here we go via the fields of Alcester Park Farm, where we spotted several birds of prey, including a sleeping owl. We join the Monarch's Way through Cold Comfort Wood, which is mainly of oak and hazel. From here we head into the Roman market town of Alcester. There are some nice pubs etc in the town and some signed toilets (which we didn't visit so can't confirm). From here we follow the River Arrow right out of town back to Coughton.

Generally excellent, but I think the end of section 10 could be clearer. "Cross the river to the track between the centre and ball courts", would be easier to follow if it said : "Cross the river and take the track to the left before you reach the junction with Gunnings Road".

A delightful walk from the start to waypoint 10, and from 14 to the finish. The urban section less so, but maybe useful for some. Easy to follow with the clear instructions and well walked paths.

No stiles and we walked through arable fields and urban areas only.
