... Comments

Our 24th annual Festive Walk will be on Tuesday 27 December 2016 – start after 9:00, finish by 16:00 at Baddesley Clinton National Trust House, B93 0DQ (5 miles from junction 5 M42)


Entry as always is FREE but we would appreciate a donation for our 3 deserving charities 

  • Prostate Cancer UK
  • Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice &
  • Motor Nuerone Disease Association 
  • with 30% retained for locally determined causes


What better way to shake off the excesses of Christmas than to get together with family and friends for a walk in the country.

There will be a choice of around 3, 6 and 9 mile FREE signed walks around the beautiful Warwickshire countryside along country lanes, towpaths and footpaths, all passing at least one country pub!

  • short (around 3 mile – post turkey plod)
  • medium (around 6 mile – walk off the pud) &
  • long (around 9 mile – festive challenge)
  • all sign-posted circular routes along country lanes, canal tow-paths and public footpaths, some with stiles, the long & medium routes passing a pub or two, and
  • all returning to Baddesley Clinton House where there will be hot mince pies and mulled wine to enjoy with the Lions, you can collect your well-deserved certificate and then
  • visit the House and Gardens FREE, and the restaurant will be happy to serve refreshments.


All 3 routes will suit most levels of fitness, age and ability but are unsuitable for buggies or wheelchairs. Dogs of all shapes and sizes are welcome provided they keep their considerate owners on a lead.


More details online at now. 

Add it to your Festive calendar today and don't forget to invite your friends and family.

See you there

Last December’s muddy Festive Walk attracted over 1750 walkers & netted £9,052 for our nominated charities & locally determined causes.
