A lovely stretch of the Heart of England Way. No hills, no complex route finding, just a simple jaunt in the Warwickshire Countryside, timed perfectly for when the heatwave took a day off. We even took rain jackets.
We battle our way through Knowle, wondering if it is just us or is the place getting slightly shabby and start the walk at the Orange Tree in Chadwick End.
The HOEW is picked up immediately over the road and after a strange route behind some ramshackle garages we are out into the Warwickshire countryside. With temperatures below 20 degrees and proper wind, its a joy to be out.

From an interest perspective the walk has an historical highlight at the midpoint. Temple Balsall is home to a Knights Templar hospital, church and manor house dating from the 12th Century. Come on a Sunday between 2:30 and 4:30pm and you can buy tea and cake.
