Sarah Nicholson's 21 Circular Walks
Local walker Sarah Nicholson recently completed all 21 Circular Walks accessed
from A Coventry Way. After covering 160 miles over two and a half years Sarah
sent us this message:
"I just wanted to send a thank you to all those involved
in the Coventry Way Association, and particularly those who developed the
circular walks. I live in Coventry and have just finished walking every one
of the circular walks: I started with walk 6 on 14th May 2017 and finished
by retracing some of my steps doing walk 5 on 2nd September 2019. I've hugely
enjoyed exploring all the paths in all weathers and seasons, sharing some
of the walks with friends, taking photos and talking about the project to
friends and family. It's been brilliant!"

30 Years of A Coventry Way – how it all started
On the 17th of September 1989
Bob Watson was approaching a stile situated on The Heart of England Way near
Chadwick End. Approaching the stile from the opposite direction were Cyril
and Iris Bean. After exchanging greetings (as walkers do), Cyril enquired
if Bob did a lot of walking and if so would he help with a project that Cyril
was beginning - A CIRCULAR WALK around the City of Coventry. The rest is history!
Annual General Meeting 2019
The 2019 Annual General Meeting will be held at 7pm on Monday 9 December at King Henry VIII School Swimming Pool Classroom. Guest speaker (to be confirmed) and refreshments.
Go to the Visitor Information section on King Henry
VIII school website for venue location details.
Another little challenge for the work party volunteers. On Walk 17 Route A near Fillongley a rotten gatepost had given way causing the gate to fall into the crop field.
A replacement hinge post and the job is done.
A Coventry Way Association had a great weekend at the Godiva Festival on 6 & 7 July. With many people stopping to view our photographic display and trying the Kissing Gate we achieved our aim of making many people aware of of the lovely countryside which is available to walk in and enjoy around the City of Coventry.
The 21 Walks Book achieved good sales and the interest in next years Cyril Bean Coventry Way Challenge suggests that once again the event will be full soon after September 1st.
