CW Circular Walk 08 & 09 - "Five Villages" & "Dunsmore Heath"

Walks 8 and 9 re-opened.  Sorry for problems during the construction of the new roundabout, but end-Jul-2005 the roundabout and footpath was re-opened, making it possible to once more follow the correct route without diversions.


GR 392 742

New Roundabout (A45/B4495/B4455 junction)

The new roundabout is shown on above map, with the slightly re-arranged route shown in Green.

The provision for pedestrians and cyclists has been carried out well.  There are crossings on each carriageway, for each of the four roads joining the roundabout, and all make crossing the roads reasonably safe (providing due care is taken - they are busy roads, and not all drivers use the appropriate lanes and signals. The layout however does help encourage good practice).  The crossing of the A45 to the east is located some 100 metres from the roundabout.

GR 387 744

Path R148 - Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Kissing Gate Cottage to A45

This path had become obstructed by overgrown vegetation, made worse by little or no use being made of the path during construction of the new roundabout.  We partly cleared the vegetation in 2005 so the path could be used, but a more thorough job still needs doing.  We requested Warwickshire CC to investigate the best way of re-installing way marks.  

Our current recommendation is to use the path by the A45 instead, and the 2007 revised edition of 21 Walks Book only shows this route.
