Help connect Bedworth
Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.
Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.
Give a hike and help get a for every one of Bedworth’s Slow Ways.

Surface is a mixture of grassed over footpath, narrow footpath and wider areas of earth/stone footpath. The route went through a large rape planted field which became quite challenging the further one went. The footpath took a small detour around electrified fencing separating areas for horses/ponies. After the previous experience the footpath was avoided by traversing the perimeter of the field....
The canal tow path is narrow, so not great if you like to walk next to your walking buddy, but otherwise is passable....
Starting in Nuneaton town centre the route soon leads into Riversley Park, before passing the Pingle Athletic, Track and heading along Coventry Road toward the canal. Once on the canal the towpath leads directly to the outskirts of Bedworth at Marston Junction, where the Coventry Canal and Ashby Canal meet. Once off the canal the route goes along some residential streets towards Bedworth town centre....
The route leaves the village and passes through grassy fields. The route leaves the canal to pass through village of Ansty, where there is an "Eatery". The section by Park Farm was a little confusing, but only because the route is marked differently on the map to how it is on the trail....
Starting in Bedworth, the route to the canal is via quiet residential streets rather than the main road....
The route starts by the public library and takes you through Nuneaton on footpaths on to a canal. The only changes I would make to the route is to perhaps start it at Nuneaton's train station, which is only few minutes walk from the start point, and end it in Bedworth town centre (still passing Bedworth's train station) which is only a couple of hundred yards beyond the train station....
Diversion possible along the disused railway in instead of making the turn, but route requires a re-design to reflect this...
A simple route, no great elevation changes and pleasant along the canal side but would be very difficult for wheelchair users....
Follows named paths but some junctions lacked signage so detailed route was required. Varied across fields, canal tow path very little on road. I would walk it again...
The next section was alongside the Coventry canal, initially through countryside and then alongside residential areas on the outskirts of Nuneaton....
A lovely route along the canal, and the change to explore the art and sculpture trail along the way. Potentially enhanced by starting at the canal basin, although this will add distance to the journey...
As previously reviewed there is a good tarmac path alongside the canal all the way to Hawkesbury Junction where Oxford Canal and Coventry Canal join. Some of this was pleasant and interesting but inevitably, given its urban situation, both the canal and canalside were blighted in parts by litter particularly beer cans. The only downside was a speeding motorbike which had no right to be on a narrow canal path....
Most of the towpath has recently been resurfaced from the centre of Coventry until Sutton Stop....
