The Harry Green Way

A 20 mile circular walk linking eight villages around Southam

 

This booklet is dedicated to the memory of Harry Green.  Harry  was the chairman of Southam Ramblers for 20 years, until his untimely death in May 2006. He was born in Epworth, Lincolnshire in 1938, and moved to Southam in 1979. With his unbounded enthusiasm he inspired a generation of walkers in this area and helped to set up the local Ramblers group.  This walk was devised by Harry in 1988, and the route was updated and waymarked in his honour by Bob Dodd in 2007.

 

The booklet has been updated by Southam Ramblers during the Covid-19 Lockdown of 2020. A significant amount of work has been done over the past 13 years, by volunteers and Warwickshire County Council, to improve and clear paths and to install gates instead of stiles. There is still however work to be done and some of the remaining stiles should be crossed with great care. The construction of HS2 will inevitably create some difficulties and diversions on the route, but these should be suitably signposted.

The GPX has been modified for a short diversion due to HS2 work near Ladbroke. This is well sign posted and adds about 100 Metres to the route
