Sunday 1 August
We have not been to Norton Lindsey for 15 years and so it’s time we went back to this attractive village near Warwick.
We meet at the Village Hall car park. Follow the A4189 Henley to Warwick Road through Claverdon and take the second right after Claverdon Station. This is at a staggered junction and signed to Norton Lindsey. At a T junction turn left and the village hall is soon reached on the left. Please park behind the Hall towards the cricket pavilion.
Those looking for refreshment afterwards may want to check out the New Inn in the village - the first community pub in Warwickshire.
Sunday 5 September
Hatton Country World
It’s been a while since our last visit to Hatton Country World, and this summer walk will take in some of the permitted paths on the Estate.
Afterwards you can wander around the Shopping Village, watch sheepdog trials or enjoy the variety of food and drink on offer. More details are on their website.
Follow the brown signs from Hatton village. Fork left after the entrance to access the larger parking area.

The View, Wootton Wawen
This is a new venue for us, having opened in July 2019 with the conversion of a cattle and grain store into a “licensed casual dining venue”. A marina has also been opened on the site, adjacent to the Stratford on Avon canal. You can check out the menu on their website. Breakfast is served from 9. a.m.
The View is on the A3400 Stratford Road after Wootton Wawen. Look out for the driveway on the right soon after you pass the Navigation Inn. Please park in some of the spaces further away from the restaurant, or in the overflow field.
Sunday 7 November
Umberslade Farm Park
This autumnal walk will be around Tanworth in Arden. Umberslade Farm Park is a popular venue for families, and you can check out the attractions on their website. These include the Farmhouse Café, which you can access without needing to pay farm park admission.
The Farm is situated near and signed from Tanworth in Arden.
Sunday 5 December
Our walks from Henley are always popular and the town should be looking seasonal for this winter walk.
There is on street parking and also no charge at Prince Harry Road car park. Meet by Lloyds Bank in the High Street.
Sunday 2 January 2022
Our New Year walk is close to home. We meet in the main car park at Shelly Farm. From Solihull take Monkspath Hall Road past the Fieldhouse pub. Turn next left into Shelly Crescent (signed Shelly Farm Shopping Centre) and by the Co-op turn next right into Farmhouse Way (signed Shelly Centre Car Park). The large car park is on the left.
Hopefully there will be some mince pies when we finish the walk!
Sunday 5 May
Our last walk from Hanbury Hall was 10 years ago, so it’s time we returned for a morning walk in the rolling parkland and hopefully find some bluebells. There is a tea room at Hanbury, and the popular Jinney Ring Craft Centre is close by.
Our popular book of Walks around Packwood House and Baddesley Clinton is on sale in the shops at Packwood House and Baddesley Clinton and also at Waterstone’s in Solihull. On line it can also be purchased through Amazon.
The book has a selection of walks of varying lengths around both properties. The price is £7.50 with all proceeds from sales through the Centre going to our Countryside and Coastline appeal.
