Route Outline

This walk explores Covenham village with its nearby reservoir. Both the Covenhams (St. Mary's and St. Bartholomew's) have a church and the two villages blend imperceptibly. The boundary is near St Bartholomew's church where a village name sign shows both; one on either side. Their names come from the Old English "Cofa's Ham" (i.e. homestead) and were separate villages in the mid 1400's, being known then as Covenham Sancti Bartholomei and Covenham Sancti Marie. However we see St Bartholomew only on our walk.
