This walk explores the Warwickshire countryside to the west of Kenilworth crossing relatively flat farmlands. The start is the carpark (fee payable) on the south side of Kenilworth Castle (grid ref. SP279720). After parking take the path opposite the car park and follow the route for 800 metres until you reach the track leading north to the Pleasance (grid ref. SP272719).

Turn right along this track to reach the southern boundary of Pleasance (grid ref. SP268724). Turn left onto a waymarked path heading west and continue for 1.6 kilometres to reach a path junction (grid ref. SP252725). Turn right here and skirt the western edge of Chase Wood to reach a bridleway just east of Warrior's Lodge Farm. Turn left onto the bridleway and follow the route as it bears right, passes through Black Hill Wood to continue alongside the northern edge of Prior's Wood.

Reaching the western end of Prior's Wood (grid ref. SP241735), turn right onto a signed footpath heading north to reach the road in Meer End (grid ref. SP244742). Turn right along Meer End Road for 150 metres to a road junction (grid ref. SP245743). Take the waymarked footpath on the right initially along a driveway. The continuing path leads across fields to reach Rudfyn Manor (grid ref. SP257738) and a junction with the Millennium Way.

Follow the waymarked Millennium Way south-eat to cross Chase Lane (grid ref. SP267730). Cross Chase Lane and stay on the Millennium Way to the A452 main road just past Kenilworth Castle (grid ref. SP278724). Pass beside the castle (on your right) and turn right down the signed Millennium Way as it skirts the eastern boundary of the Castle. The path soon leads onto a track which will take back to the start.
