There is a pleasing variety of Warwickshire countryside on this walk to the east of Henley-in-Arden, including farmland and woodland. Expect about twenty stiles and lots of butterflies.
To start, we walk over the River Alne to Preston Bagot Church for a drink stop. We then continue over the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal to Yarningale Common. It is then north to the Fleur de Lys Inn in Lowsonford so named after an English spy returned to England in a pie! We return on the Heart of England Way finishing over Beaudesert Mount, the remains of a 13th century motte-and-bailey castle. There are tea shops and pubs on the High Street if you would like to linger after the walk.
