|Millennium Way: New End and Cookhill|
|Author: Millennium Way, Published: 04 Jan 2017||Walk Rating:|
|Worcestershire, New End|
|An enjoyable 3.5 mile circular walk with opportunity to enjoy the attractive countryside in both Worcestershire and Warwickshire. During the walk, you will enjoy a short section of the Millennium Way, the route being clearly marked by the distinctive waymarkers. You will notice that the waymarkers in Worcestershire are green and those in Warwickshire are black, but the logo is the same on both waymarkers. |
The route has several climbs and descents throughout. You will need to negotiate several gates, kissing gates plus 8 stiles (which are mostly dog friendly). There are a couple of sections of road walking and you will cross a couple of horse paddocks. Allow 2 hours.
The Millennium Way is a beautiful 100 mile walk in the heart of England, from Pershore in Worcestershire to Middleton Cheney in Northamptonshire. The route was created by the 41 Club as a community project, with something to offer every walker or rambler across Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Northamptonshire. This is one of 44 circular walks, each of which incorporates a section of the Millennium Way and is published in partnership with 41 Club.
The village of New End is located on the A441, about 6 miles south of Redditch in Worcestershire. The walk starts and finishes outside The Nevill Arms in New End. If you are taking refreshments in the pub, then the pub has its own car park, otherwise there is roadside parking available. Approximate post code B96 6NB.
|Start to Wood Lane|
Start point: 52.2389 lat, -1.9266 long
Our walk starts at the Nevill Arms at New End, on the A441 just south of Redditch. Emerging from the car park of the Nevill Arms, turn right into Saltway and continue down to go left into Brandheath Lane. You are already on The Millennium Way and will be guided by the distinctive way markers. After 100 yards, just adjacent to the private driveway ahead, turn right down a hidden narrow passage.
|Wood Lane to Evesham Road|
Start point: 52.2337 lat, -1.9304 long
Turn right down the road to arrive at a crossroads. Here, turn left into Cladswell Lane and continue along the gently undulating lane for about half a mile. You will continue on past Lower Cladswell Lane and Cladswell Close, the lane gently rising to a point where it turns sharp left into Church Lane.
|Evesham Road to Wooden Bridge|
Start point: 52.2253 lat, -1.9196 long
Cross directly over the main road and take the waymarked bridleway, signed to Alcester. Stay ahead with a pine wood on your left. Soon you will emerge into a field with glorious views ahead. Continue through the gap ahead and gently down the field, keeping a wood on your right. Stay ahead for some while, going downhill, not straying into the open field on the left, but past a waypost down a narrow track.
|Wooden Bridge to End|
Start point: 52.2317 lat, -1.9075 long
You are now back on the Millennium Way and will remain so until the end of the walk. Continue along the edge of this vast field, ignoring any gaps on the right. At the end of the field, continue through into the next field with the hedge on your right and, after some 150 paces, take a large wide gap, continuing to maintain your line (now with a hedge on your left) and passing under power lines.

Great App - never get lost! by The Parallax View Best couple of quid I’ve spent in a long time. Walks are well described & it’s easy to see if you’ve wandered off the mapped tracks via GPS. Degree of difficulty is useful too - can choose a 2 Welly, 5 mile walk with a pub at the end for a relaxing Sunday.

Wow what a lovely experience it was using your app worked perfectly from the off for the first time found walks nearby we would have never found, brilliant work guys and gals.
This is a great app. Easy to use. Great selection of walks and very uncomplicated instructions, good simple maps. Other walking apps I have tried can be very confusing, this one is just right. Thank you
I used the app for the first time this afternoon. I lead regular ‘Walking for Health’. The app is terrific!
I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
