A new book is about to be published to add to the
"A Coventry Way Association Publications" launched over
The Title is:
"A Coventry Way 21 Circular Walks
... or in short known as 21 Walks
The Book is:
The "21 Walks plus" booklet is a concise edition
of the 106 page version first published in 2002.
It is available as a printed 44 page booklet or as a
downloadable set of files to allow single map updates to
Continuity from the 106 Page version & some of the
You will see that the back cover looks much like that on
it's predecessor, with the top half almost identical - and

All 21 Walks are basically evolutions from the 106 page
version, BUT fit on half the number of pages. Anything
essential from the other pages has been squeezed onto the two
pages - hence "concise version".
The Directions page and Map page for each walk retain the
same basic look, and in effect are the updated version. So the
First Plus is just updating - adding
all the things which have evolved over the years.
The Second Plus is that new paths
have been used where they are better than the old ones.
Sometimes they have evolved as Permissive Paths, sometimes
Permissive paths intended to become the Definitive Path -
agreed by the LA Planning departments to allow Land Use
changes, but still waiting to be made official after 10 or
more years! (in the short term that leaves a minus in that
Waymarking is often poor, non standard or missing altogether -
but the plus of that is that our instructions and your
intelligence should let you navigate correctly!).
The Third Plus is that some walks
(e.g. Walks 12 & 13) have had a useful stile free
&/or short walk option of 4 miles or less added.
Other shorter walks are summarised on Footpath Updates page.
Note: The Plus also points out that 21 always meant 41
(plus 20 Route As) and with rest of sentence above Total is 46
