Help connect New Arley

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 New Arley’s Slow Ways.

Only required interpretation crossing a couple of golf courses where they haven't marked the right of way. Mainly offroad, but where it isn't there is mostly pavement or it's along a quiet lane. Steps and stiles so not great for wheels...

I would add that the route was generally enjoyable but could clearly be improved, particularly from a Slow Ways perspective....

As the first reviewer rightly noted, the path up from Bennetts Road North to Burrow Hill Lane is quite overgrown and constrained between fences. We cross at the junction and go a short distance down Lamp Lane, then take the field path down to Tippers Hill Lane, where we go right then left along what is initially a farm track. Nuneaton Road is reached easily enough, and we turn right then use another field path to reach Sandy Lane, where we turn left and then right at Wood Lane, where the next field path is at the far side of the junction. With a little determination we reach Burrow Hill Lane, where we go right then left up Rock Lane, where we saw climbers on what looks like an old quarry. After crossing Bennetts Road South we approach houses, but it is easiest to stay on the well trodden field path and cross to the allyeway lower down near Brookford Avenue....

Another footpath leads us back over the golf course and continues through fields to Barley Close Lane, where we turn right, then left on Ridge Lane which has a pavement. Our path goes through an alleyway just before the pub, then goes left between fields and gardens, then right along a field edge into another golf course....

We pioneered this route from Atherstone to New Arley, but decided to make a few minor changes which I have uploaded as NEWATH two. I will write a more detailed review with pictures there....

The walk starts by leaving the village behind fairly quickly, hugging the edge of Daffern's Wood (photo 1) before reaching a short section of road to Gun Hill Farm. The route then ascends towards another brief road section, before getting to a double track towards Tipper's Hill Farm. The route passes under electricity lines (photo 5) as you head towards the village of Wood End, where there is another brief section of road walking through the village. The next footpath is reached from the car park of the pub, and takes you across grassland before reaching Sandy Lane and yet another bit of road walking. The distraction was soon forgotten though, as the route takes you along a busy road with no footpath (photo 10) around the fort at the top of Burrow Hill. There is one final section of road walking along Fivefield Road, but after reaching the outskirts of the City, most of the walk is taken up through the side streets of suburbia (photo 11) as you snake your way towards the city centre....

It rejoins Newbed one at High House Farm and Breach Oak Lane, however upon reaching the lane I turned and noted the route wasn't signposted going the other way (photo 7), but the paths were well maintained. After leaving the Lane, the route then rejoins rural footpaths (photo 9) on what is part of the Coventry Way. After crossing Heath Road, the dismantled railway route can be followed further after going through a gap in the fence and following a well trodden path along the old rail route (photo 12). The route takes you under the A444 bypass (photo 13) before then taking you through to the end via a mixture of streets and urban footpaths (photo 14)....

Diversion possible along the disused railway in instead of making the turn, but route requires a re-design to reflect this...
