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!


Details of any rerouted sections (most recent, outskirts of Dorsington village) can be found here.

An afternoon's chat with our illustrious Honorary Life President, John Watts


Our chairman Mike Norman talks with John about many things, including how HOEW was adopted formally as a National Long Distance Path.


Full details


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.
