Welcome to the North Arden Heritage Trail.

The North Arden Heritage Trail project worked with local communities to establish a 25 mile circular heritage trail in North Warwickshire passing through the parishes of Atherstone, Mancetter, Hartshill, Ansley, Arley, Astley, Fillongley, Maxstoke, Shustoke, Nether Whitacre, Kingsbury, Baddesley Ensor and Merevele.

The trails foundation is the historic network of ancient tracks, farmers’ walks for driving livestock and delivering local produce or timber to market, and miners’ walk between their home, work, friends, family and place of worship. Historically the parishes had strong connections with its neighbours via trading, supply labour and materials.
