The Obelisk or Monument was erected in 1876 by Robert Needham Philips to honour his brother Mark Philips on a hill above the Welcombe Hotel. It's visible for miles around Stratford.

This walk starts at a busy, free car park just outside Stratford-upon-Avon, heads up to Welcombe Hills Country Park to the obelisk, then cuts through the local golf course. We basically turn around and follow a path running roughly parallel with the outgoing one, offering views in the opposite direction.

It's a straightforward walk with a few short steep climbs that will reward you with wonderful views.
