Starting at the YHA we will follow the route of the former Ashby canal to its terminus, continuing on to Swain’s Park Railway junction, which was once a heavily industrialised area for clay and bricks. From there, onto the ancient Church Gresley Tunnel Woods, along Pit Lane with wonderful views across the Trent Valley and beyond before we circulate the new Gresley Woods. On the return we will pass the current clay works and come back to the YHA along the former Nuneaton to Burton railway line. Good paths with some rough and possibly wet areas. Booking essential. Please call 01283 551211.
