Welcome to

Heart of England Way and Arden Way


It was with great shock and sadness that we learnt of the sudden death of Life VP and ex-Chairman Graham Rothery. We offer Trish and family our sincerest condolences at this difficult 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.


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


Details of any rerouted sections (most recent, outskirts of Dorsington village) 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 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 :) .
