The Berkswell Society

Recommended Walks in and Around Berkswell Parish

These walks have been prepared by Councillors from Berkswell Parish Council in a joint venture with the Berkswell Society.
They all use established public rights of way/permissive paths. The descriptions are correct at the time of writing.
Walkers need to take adequate precautions when out in the country, you are not walking on city streets.
Neither the parish council nor the Berkswell Society accept any liability for anyone who injures themselves whilst walking these routes.
The parish council have published these walks on the Berkswell Society website because it offers better technical flexibility than the PC website.
They are designed to aid people’s mental and physical health because exercise outside helps both.
That is particularly important during any coronavirus restrictions.

The walks are, on some occasions, illustrated with Ordinance Survey maps which are published using the parish council’s licence. @Crown copyright and database rights [2015] Ordnance Survey Berkswell Parish Council (Licensee) License number OS PSMA number 010005793.
