|Millennium Way: Cubbington and Offchurch|
|Author: Millennium Way, Published: 02 Jul 2017||Walk Rating:|
|Warwickshire, Leamington Spa|
|A 7 mile circular walk from the village of Cubbington in Warwickshire. The route is through open fields, enjoying the delights of Newbold Comyn Golf Course, the historic village of Offchurch and a brief sighting of the River Leam. For the first stretch, you will enjoy the delights of The Millennium Way where you will be guided by the distinctive black Millennium Way waymarkers.
The walk has several steady gradients throughout. You will need to negotiate several gates and kissing gates, some footbridges (including single sleeper bridges) plus 8 stiles (most of these will be ok for dogs, but there is one that dogs will need a lift over). Most of the land is arable, but some of the fields you will cross may be holding livestock. You will need to cross a golf course, so please show respect for the golfers by allowing them to play their shots before you cross the fairways and watch out for any stray flying golf balls. Allow 3.5 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.
Cubbington is a village adjoining the north-eastern outskirts of Leamington Spa in Warwickshire. The walk starts and finishes outside the Kings Head pub, opposite St Mary’s Church on Church Hill. There is some roadside parking available here, or additional roadside parking on the nearby High Street. Approximate post code CV32 7JY.
|Start to The Runghills|
Start point: 52.3118 lat, -1.4967 long
Standing on Church Hill facing the Kings Head pub, turn right to go downhill to the junction with Church Lane then cross ahead into the High Street, with Old Manor House on your left. Follow the High Street into the village centre, where it becomes Queen Street. Continue ahead past shops and The Queen's Head pub to the junction with Windmill Hill. Turn left here into Offchurch Road, walking past houses on your left and in 160m cross the road to reach a kissing gate in the hedge on your right. Here you will see the distinctive black Millennium Way waymarker. Take the kissing gate and go gently uphill on a well-trodden path with a hedge on your right. A tower block soon comes into view, a block of flats on the Lillington Estate.
|The Runghills to River Leam Bridge|
Start point: 52.2984 lat, -1.4998 long
At the far corner of the wood (The Runghills) turn sharp right through a narrow gap over a sleeper bridge which crosses a ditch. Immediately under power lines, continue ahead to the corner of the wood to take a waymarked gap right to go ahead (with the wood on your right) and exit by a corner gap. Continue ahead to find and take a sleeper bridge towards Redhouse Farm and then go directly ahead over the field to a hedge gap. Ignore the stile left, instead take the gap and proceed ahead to a concrete drive. Go left on the drive and, after some 30 paces, go right (with a fence on your left) to take a kissing gate into a field.
|River Leam Bridge to Manor Farm|
Start point: 52.288 lat, -1.4924 long
Cross over the footbridge, then go right along a woodland footpath, with the river on your right, to cross over a bridge and take a stile ahead. After 20 paces, go right along a grassy track and keep left at the corner ahead, following around the grassy track with the hedge on your right. Cross over a surfaced track ahead and continue on the same line, keeping a small ditch on your right. As you reach the corner where the ditch ends, turn right by the brick wall and wooden fencing to walk along the surfaced track. (In the winter you may get a glimpse of St. Gregory's Church in Offchurch, but in summer this will be obscured by the trees in leaf.)
|Manor Farm to End|
Start point: 52.2918 lat, -1.4719 long
Stay ahead (with the fence on your left) to take two further stiles by metal gates and go up the next field, keeping a hedge on your left. At the field corner, go directly ahead to take a metal kissing gate which will take you along a winding path through the short section of woodland. Emerge to take the metal gate into the next field. Go ahead with the hedge on your right to reach the farm buildings at the field corner. Turn diagonally left and, after just 30 paces, go diagonally left again to join a clearly defined farm track. Continue down this track, past an old building on your right, when after some distance it eventually swings gently right to a gate.

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!
