Welcome to

Heart of England Way and Arden Way

***   ***   ***

It is with the deapest sadness, that we report the loss recently of our lifetime President, the lovely man John Watts.  John was integral to the setting up of the Arden Way, and of the development and guidance during the creation of the Heart of England Way.  We all wish his wife and family our hearfelt love and prayers at this time.

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.


Our walks programme is currently suspended during the Coronavirus lockdown.


Details of any rerouted sections (most recently, at Weeford, and Preston Bagot) can be found 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 checking the route for problems, and discussing issues with both landowners and local authorities, we also lead regular walks on weekdays and weekends.
