Coleshill Circular Walk 16 October 2018

4 miles

On a very misty and drizzling morning 10 members gathered at the normal car park to travel to Coleshill. 3 cars made their way to the National Trust Coleshill Estate carpark . The route we were following today was the Red Walk; this is one of five walks round the Estate which are all advertised as easy. From past experience I knew the walk would be wet and muddy.  We left the car park, crossed the road and entered the park via a cattle grid to a well-defined grass track and then onto a concrete path.  This took us through Waterloo Copse and past Waterloo Lodge.  From here we followed the hedge lines, some were beneath 5 towering wind turbines.  At Ashen Copse Farm the terrain became concrete and then it was soon back to the fields passing by Flanborough Woods and the circle was completed by walking across Coleshill Park.  Although it was muddy and wet underfoot it was an enjoyable walk.  Arriving back at our cars, 4 travelled back to Carterton and 6 of us went for a coffee at the Radnor Arms.  Our next long walk is on 20th November, route tbd.  Thank you to the car drivers.  Pam
