Walking became a popular pastime during lockdown, and we hope some of you who have not been on our walks before will come along and join us.
Our Sunday morning walks start at 10.30, usually on the first Sunday of each month, and are a leisurely three to four miles. We have about 15 to 20 walkers and aim to finish between 12.30 and 1.00pm.
Below are the dates and venues of this year's walks. Further details will follow soon.
If you are interested in attending please let us know about 7 to 10 days beforehand, using the enquiry form below, and you will be sent details and a booking confirmation.

Our last walk from Charlecote (CV35 9ER) was in the spring of 2009. This will be a chance for a pleasant walk alongside the river then the pleasure of Charlecote at Christmas. The café will be open from 9 a.m. Please remember to bring your National Trust membership cards.

The first Sunday of the New Year falls on New Year’s Day, and how better to spend the morning than a local walk to clear the cobwebs and work off the Christmas indulgence. There may even be some mince pies to enjoy after the walk. We meet at the Parish Council Recreation Ground car park in Shadowbrook Lane, B92 0DQ. Turn left by the war memorial and the car park is straight ahead on the sharp left bend.

We’re staying close to home for this winter walk which starts from the Drum & Monkey in Four Ashes Road, Dorridge (B93 8ND). This is a popular pub, and you can visit their website to check out their Sunday lunch menu. Please park at the rear of the car park.

Enjoy a springtime walk around Kenilworth taking in some of the famous and lesser-known historical features. Park in Abbey End car park, CV8 1QJ. Follow the road past the castle and up to the roundabout. Turn left and the car park entrance is on the right. Parking is £3.00 for 3 hours.

On Palm Sunday we’re going somewhere we’ve not walked for years, with a meander around the canal-side village of Tardebigge, home to the longest lock flight in the UK. We meet at the Tardebigge Inn (B97 6QL), gifted to the people of the village by the Earl of Plymouth as a Village Hall.

Please note this is on the second Sunday of the month because of the Coronation events.
This spring walk is from Alcester, a small attractive town with some good walks in the area. At the roundabout after Coughton continue into the town. At the traffic lights turn left into School Road, then the 3rd right into Moorfield Road. The Bulls Head Yard car park is on the left-hand side. Go round the bend to the larger parking area.
More walks coming soon!

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.
