Based on the historic Warwickshire towns of Henley-in-Arden and Alcester, weaving its way through the delightful Shakespearian countryside and Forest of Arden.


It radiates along countryside paths passing through Alcester, Aston Cantlow, Henley in Arden and Studley.


Created by Heart of England Way Association, and devised by one of its Alcester members, The Arden Way is recognised by Warwickshire County Council.


The Arden Way takes walkers through some of the finest landscape in Warwickshire.


Using field paths, tracks lanes and woodland paths as it gently sweeps through the typically rolling Warwickshire countryside.


It's way marked with a simple circle of leaves and the name in green on white, shown on the OS Explorer maps 205 & 220 as a recreational long distance path.



I'm going to attempt this route unsupported soon, probably this weekend although the weather looks like it'll be terrible. It's my first attempt on this site, so hopefully I'm doing everything right. Aiming for a time of around 4 hours.
