Welcome to

Heart of England Way and Arden Way

The Heart of England Way is 100 miles of recreational walking, between Milford (on the northern tip of Cannock Chase) in the north, and Bourton on the Water in the Cotswolds.  We also promote and maintain The Arden Way, a 26 mile circular walk in the Forest of Arden area of Warwickshire.


See our latest walks programme - plenty to choose from! - our interactive map of walks shows the full range of locations.


*** SAD NEWS ***

It is with great sadness that we report the sudden death of our long serving member and friend Don Priestley.  Don has been a regular walker for many years participating in both our regular shorter walks and for many years being a member of the long distance group.


We offer our sincerest condolences to Pauline and the family at this most difficult time. The funeral will take place at Robin Hood Crematorium on Friday February 9th.at 12.00 pm


*** STOP PRESS ***

HoEW has been re-routed on the outskirts of Dorsington village. The new route uses an attractive permissive footpath.

Further details here.



The route is recognised by three County Councils and one Borough Council through whose areas it passes:  Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire and Solihull MBC.  An illustrated guide is available, describing the route in both directions, and now includes circular walks as well.


Apart from maintaining the route and discussing issues with both landowners and local authorities, we also lead regular walks on weekdays and weekends.

Take a look at our most recent committee update - there are lots of tasks and plenty to volunteer for :) .
