Rambling: Take in Historic Sites along Pretty Countryside Route; Richard Shurey Strolls through the Heart of England

A few months ago I received details of a ramble organised by the Heart of England Way Association. The idea was that a walk along the way from Fillongley would hopefully encourage walkers to join the Association.

Unfortunately the details reached me at holiday time so I was unable to give the Association the publicity it deserves. The Way is a recreational long distance waymarked route over 100 miles of rights of way from Cannock Chase in the North to join up with the Oxfordshire Way at Bourton-on-the-Water to the South.

Turn right then at once left to climb a stile to a field. Take the path over the open field to cross a brook. Follow the path around fields to a lane near a house. Turn right.

We have now left the route of the Centenary Way. Within a quarter of a mile and by a brook turn left over a stile. …
