|Millennium Way: Burton Green and Beechwood|
|Author: Millennium Way, Published: 20 Jul 2017||Walk Rating:|
|A 7 mile circular walk from the village of Burton Green in Warwickshire. The route covers a delightful area of the Warwickshire countryside including farmland, some woodland and quiet lanes. The walk incorporates a section of the Millennium Way, where you will be guided by the distinctive black waymarkers.
The route has several gentle gradients throughout. You will need to negotiate lots of kissing gates, footbridges (including single plank bridges), some steps, plus 12 stiles (some of which dogs will need a lift over). There are a couple of road crossings plus some short sections of road walking. You may come across livestock in some of the fields. 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.
Burton Green is located about 5 miles southwest of Coventry in Warwickshire. The walk starts and finishes from the pub on Cromwell Lane, formerly called the Peeping Tom but currently The Hickory Smoke House. If you are taking refreshments here, the pub has its own car park, otherwise there is parking available on some of the nearby residential streets. Approximate post code CV4 8AP.
|Start to Hob Lane|
Start point: 52.3874 lat, -1.6009 long
With your back to the pub, cross over the road and go left for a few yards to find a footpath on your right. Go down this narrow track (with a fence on your left) and follow to the end of the track into a field. Continue along between wire fences and, on reaching a corner, continue right along the narrow track to go through a kissing gate at the end of the track, and take a kissing gate a few yards ahead into a field. A lovely panoramic view unfolds ahead.
|Hob Lane to Millennium Way|
Start point: 52.3784 lat, -1.6075 long
Turn left here into Hob Lane and continue on past Burton Green Primary School. After a further 200 yards or so, where the road bends gently right, go left by the waymark sign, following the route named Birmingham Road. (Ignore the footpath on the right). Stay along the private drive and, just before a white house named Stile End, take a stile/gap on the left and then a kissing gate into a field. Stay directly forward here, taking the right-hand footpath and keeping close to trees on your right.
|Millennium Way to Waste Lane|
Start point: 52.3634 lat, -1.6213 long
Opposite this driveway we turn directly right to cross a field, passing 10 yards to the left of a large solitary oak tree. Stay ahead across the field centre, aiming for a yellow-topped waypost by the field corner edge, where you will notice a distinctive black Millennium Way waymarker. Follow the waymarker slightly right then, after 10 paces, take the gap on your left and turn immediately right to stay along the field with a hedge on your right. Follow around the field edge, heading up the field to reach a far mid-hedge stile.
|Waste Lane to End|
Start point: 52.3854 lat, -1.6326 long
Cross the road and go right for 30 paces to take a large kissing on your left to enter a field. Go diagonally right over the field to exit by the corner kissing gate to a road. Go right on Old Waste Lane then take the driveway left, adjacent to a house named Oaklands (some 40 paces before the road end). After 70 paces, continue through a passageway to reach and take a kissing gate into a field. Go with the hedge on your left to reach the corner, then go through a metal kissing gate and over a ditch bridge to maintain your line (with a hedge on your left) to reach a hedge and kissing 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!
