Day walk - Stratford-upon-Avon

The opportunity for just one day out but at least the weather was reasonable and no need to take waterproofs. Parking the car on the northern edge of the town, I followed the Monarch's Way north through Welcome Hills Country Park to the village of Snitterfield where I happened to meet a couple of friends who I hadn't seen for ages. Chatted for ten minutes before moving on. It was all very pleasant, not demanding but some quite far-reaching views up into the Midlands although quite muddy in places. The Way took me to the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal just north of Wootton Wawen at bridge 51.

I followed the towpath for the six or so miles back down to Stratford. There were no boats on the move at all, it being probably too early in the season. The Edstone Aqueduct at Bearley Cross is quite impressive. The towpath dips down for its length so that the top of the metal trough containing the canal is at shoulder level.
