TUESDAY WALKS 10.00 start

Details of all walks to be finalised via email 7 days before due date

Tuesday 16th July Starting 10am

The walk:

The walk begins in Lower Quinton and follows Monarchs Way, Centenary Way and The Heart of England Way. It goes around Meon Hill which is an Iron Age Hill Fort but unfortunately there is no public access to the top. There are 2 steep hills, and one moderate hill, but none of them are very long. The walk passes through pasture, farmland, grassland and woodland and there are great views. On the reccie there was very little mud but there is always that potential if we have heavy rain. We found a great spot in the public area at Hidcote for lunch. If you are a member and want to go in to use the facilities please bring your NT card. From Hidcote we meet Kifstgate and walk alongside it down the steep bank. We follow more paths & tracks on our return journey. There are about 6 stiles - (one of them dodgy), gates & foot bridges.

The walk is around 8.5 miles.

Parking is on Goose Lane (opposite the new houses), nearest postcode CV37 8SZ

It is a small road so please car share where possible and park on the side where the footpath is so we won't block the road and/or annoy the villagers. If it looks a bit crowded and you want an alternative parking place, you could use St Swithins Drive residential area, nearest postcode CV37 8SD.
