Details

Thursday 5th September 2019 – Shuttington and the Coventry Canal Walk.  This is an easy 5 mile walk with 2 stiles across farmland, on pavements, and along a towpath.  Leaving the car park we head downhill towards Shuttington bridge, and take a recently signposted path past Alvecote Pools Nature Reserve to join the Coventry Canal at Robey's Lane.  We then head west along the tow path and leave it at the skew bridge, now heading north towards Amington Hall Farm.  We soon change direction slightly to approach Statfold Farm.  This enterprising business has its own private railway, which is open to the public on selected weekends.  We continue south-eastwards along a well-defined track, which marks the boundary between Warwickshire and Staffordshire.  At a point marked as Laundry Cottages (now demolished) we head uphill back to our starting point.  Meet 10:15 for a 10:30 start in the car park of The Wolferstan Arms, Main Road, Shuttington, Warks. B79 0DP. Contact Clive Walker on 07866 201873 or clive.walker@waterways.org.uk .
