Coventry Canal Path

Coventry Canal Path

Length >60km
Max transport gap <10km

A 61km walk between the centre of Coventry and Fradley Junction.

This route follows the Coventry Canal: it meets the Trent and Mersey Canal at Fradley Junction. Public transport connections (25 locations, 1 matrix) are available throughout. The question of base stations is fraught: Nuneaton might serve for the area between Coventry and Polesworth (and also for the link to Lichfield Trent Valley station), but west of the M42, the travel nodes become a bit fractured. Otherwise, it is down to days out of Birmingham.


Walkers should note that at the northern end, a there-and-back section of under 2km is needed to connect with the bus in Fradley.
