Around Huddlesford From Whittington – 4.5m - Tuesday 18th April

Bridge No 81, Coventry Canal by Roger Kidd

This event is now closed

This walk is mainly flat or on gentle slopes. No stiles, and benches for a coffee stop by the canal. Boots are recommended, although there is usually little mud, except sometimes along the canal.

Beginning from The Dog Inn in Whittington village, we take the canal tow-path to a lane which takes us towards Huddlesford Farm and across fields and lanes to a track which runs alongside Whittington Golf course.  There we should be able to see some of the work being done for HS2 (maybe prompting some discussion about it’s merits or otherwise?). Then there is a sandy lane which takes us back to the village.

Start: 10.15 at “The Dog Inn”, 2 Main St, Whittington, Lichfield.

Sat Nav: WS14 9JU.
Lunch: The pub has a very varied menu and they are happy that we book our meal on the day, so please arrive before 10.00 so that this can be done before we set out. If you are joining us for lunch, please let me know by Saturday 15th so that numbers can be confirmed with the pub. If you are joining us for lunch only, please aim to be at the pub by 12.45
