West Midlands

Hidcote (Monarch’s Way)

Roughly speaking, the West Midlands region is the area bounded by Wales (of course), Stockport, Stoke, Rugby, Kemble, Marlborough, Bath and Bristol.

The West Midlands area contains two National Trails:

though the latter of these weaves in and out of Wales.

Local authorities have woven managed routes into the local fabric. These include the Heart of England Way, the Wychavon Way and the Staffordshire Way. Note that some of these routes have been handed over to support groups as local authorities step back from full support and maintenance, and that other routes (such as the Centenary Way in Warwickshire) are being allowed to fade into obscurity.

Individuals’ routes abound throughout the region, including the Herefordshire Trail, all the way down to very local routes which may only exist as a PDF download (or worse) from a website of greater or lesser obscurity. In fact, the websites and other information sources for all unofficial walk routes differ greatly in quality and updating practice.
