The walk starts by the canalside pub called The Warf Tavern. This is a decent local pub offering a reasonable carvery. Website http://tinyurl.com/cgae2wx. Buses stop just outside - see access info' for link.

From the pub we set off along the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal, where there are usually some fine barges moored. We leave the canal and head via Mountford Farm to Lapworth. From here we make our way across the motorway via the grounds of Lapworth Grange (I won't spoil the surpise here - go see for yourself).

On the far side of the motorway the walk progresses past Nuthurst Farm, then along a reasonably quiet lane back across the motorway to take a look at the mystery obelisk of Obelisk Farm.

The walk continues past the ruins of a chapel and through the grounds of the local Baptist and Church of England churches, before a short road-walk back to the canal.

This walk is a stretcher. A lot of uphill walking. Some of the paths by the motorway are overgrown but walk-able. Plenty of livestock on route and some pleasant surprises. Really pleasant walk. Rob and Chrissy 22/10/18

Walked on the 22.11.15. Some stiles now replaced with kissing gates. The pub that the walk starts and ends from serves C*sta coffee, welcoming on a cold day. gps track here http://goo.gl/Qyl5KP

This is a surprising walk and if it wasn't for the almost constant noise from the motorway would be quite delightful. We walked on the last Sunday of the month which is when you will find the Baptist Church ( 9 ) open between 2 and 4pm. The church is being restored and Peter and Janet would be only too pleased to show you round. It is well worth a visit if you are interested in the history of the area and I think there is a possibility of teas being served in the future.

An easy walk through attractive Warwickshire countryside. No need to furrow your brow, the directions are absolutely immaculate.
