'Warwickshire's Centenary Way was established by the Council in 1989 to celebrate its 100th anniversary ... This 100 mile Path starts at Kingsbury Water Park in the north of the county and winds its way down to Upper Quinton on the Gloucestershire border. The route can be followed on Ordnance Survey Explorer Maps.'

'The series of Church2Church Walks in Warwickshire offer the walker something uniquely different. Because the distances between churches are generally very manageable to walk, it is about taking your time to go from Church2Church, to enjoy and appreciate the countryside around and when finally, you arrive at the next church, to allow yourself time to have a look around and to enjoy and appreciate the stillness and peace that can be found in and around churches and churchyards.'
'Geochaches can be found in or around Warwickshire Country Parks, for example:  Burton Dassett - - - :  Hartshill Hayes - - - :  Kingsbury Water Park - - - :  Ryton Pools - - - :  Kenilworth Greenway - - - :  Offchurch Greenway - - - :  Stratford Greenway ...'

The Oxford Canal is 'a long-distance route, following the towpath for 77 miles from Oxford to Hawkesbury. The gentle engineering of the canal, with few lock flights, means that the walking is always easy, and the scenery is stunning'. The Walk itself can (also) begin 'near Hawkesbury Village at Hawkesbury Junction, also known as Sutton Stop, where it connects with the Coventry Canal, four miles from the centre of Coventry'.

'It’s a simple vision: to plant, protect and preserve a huge broadleaf forest – a place of tranquility and natural beauty that’s open to anyone and planted with the help and support of everyone ... The Forest stretches across the heart of England – from the ancient Forest of Arden, south to the edge of the Vale of Evesham. It’s an area dense in cities, towns and industry. Which is why we’re creating a place to walk under shady canopies and through airy glades, away from the bustle of city life.'
'A list of those promoted routes which meet certain criteria and are therefore supported by WCC [Warwickshire County Council]. This may mean that route-specific waymarking is permitted, or that we work in partnership with the promotes of the route. There will also normally be a link from the WCC website ... A Promoted Route is one which has a leaflet, guide book or website describing the route in sufficient detail that a member of the public could follow it with reasonable ease. ' List published March 2011.
