Day Walk. 8 Bridges walk from Brinklow

Four members met at Brinklow on a very warm and sunny July morning to walk a section of the Coventry Way. The walk was lead by Martyn and started in Brinklow Village and followed the Coventry and Centenary Ways through the rural landscape, passing the site of the medieval village of Upper Smite, the village of Folesworth, with its old and interesting Alms houses, Stretton under fosse and in a large circle to return to Brinklow past the site of the motte and bailey castle. Other notable features, as the name of the walk suggests, were the 8 bridges including a 19th Centaury Peddler’s Pack horse bridge and the magnificent bridges over the now disused railway line. The walk was 8.5 miles long and easy walking along footpath and tracks.
