This Warwickshire walk starts from the medieval stone cross situated in Meriden, which reputedly marks the centre of England. Meriden is also the fulcrum of the 100 mile long distance walking path known as The Millennium Way, which runs from Pershore to Meriden then down to Middleton Cheney. This circular walk incorporates the two northern sections of the Millennium Way, joined by a short link through the delightful village of Berkswell. A GPX File is available for download (see walk description).
